Aberdeen Waterfall – Nuwara Eliya


The Aberdeen Waterfall remains one of the most iconic waterfalls in the Nuwara Eliya district! Reaching the cascade involves a reasonably challenging hike that will take you down a winding pathway composed of narrow staircases and paths laid in concrete. The walk will take you through lush undergrowth, which is usually darkened by the thick canopy – the hike is so scenic that many would find it very therapeutic. During the journey, one could listen to the sweet melodies of songbirds, the slow buzzing sound of the insects, and witness such creatures. There are unique plants, and you will also walk past several creeks, large boulders, and vines. At the end of the trail lies the waterfall –magnificent, epic, and stunning, all the elaborate words fail to describe its beauty – It is a site that must be visited to understand and appreciate its splendour!
Explorers and adventurers can walk till the bottom of the waterfall where there is a pool – but bear in mind that it is relatively deep and the water will be cold, so it is not recommended for swimming. But instead, you could rent a kayak and paddle your way below the cascade. The mist from the waterfall will undoubtedly soak up your clothes, so make sure that you are clad in proper swimwear. The return journey will also be a bit scary since you will have to climb your way up, which you quickly got down! You can find more information about the site from our reception, and excursions to the site or transportation can also be arranged by reaching out to our resort’s front desk as well.
