LOVERS LEAP

At Nuwara Eliya, this is a spectacular 30 meter high waterfall named, Lovers Leap Fall, with the formation of the streams and brooks of Sri Lanka’s highest mountain, the Piduruthalagala (2524 meters). It flows over hard granite ledges. In dry spells, the flow is languid. The water is collected in a tank of a portable water system and used for drinking. The fall is said to derive its name from the tragic tale of a prince, who while hunting in the jungle, lost his way. He was rescued by a beautiful girl from a nearby village, and the two became inseparable lovers. But the match was not to the liking of the prince’s family, so the two decided to immortalise their love by leaping from the top of the fall to their death.
