Diyaluma waterfall is the third-highest of waterfalls in Sri Lanka. It is the perfect spot for a full-day adventure. Basically, the Diyaluma, aka Bridal falls, collects its water from the Poonagalla Oya in Koslanda and Wellawaya. Diyaluma means the rapid flow of water.

It is a breathtakingly beautiful waterfall with a huge water flow during the rainy season. However, during the dry season, the water of the fall decreases rapidly. The waterfall turns into a shape that resembles a bride’s veil.

Located six miles from Koslanda and 13 miles from Wellawaya, its waters originate from the Mahakande Pass in Koslanda. With an appearance and location which often makes people believe that it is the highest waterfall on the island, this tall and thin waterfall pours its way down.

 

It flows towards Kirindi Oya under a bridge on the highway from Beragala to Wellawaya. The ponds at the upper Diyaluma section are a favorite hotspot among tourists (video).

 

During the rain season, the local disaster management unit urges the visitors to avoid the risk of flooding as the water level of the falls can increase rapidly in the event of heavy rainfall in the catchment areas. Many tourists travel to this waterfall as well as the upper area.
