Laxapana Falls – Nuwara Eliya
The Laxapana Falls holds a grand 126 metres in height. This would make it the country’s eighth tallest waterfall, only surpassed by behemoths like Dunhinda and Babarakanda Falls. It is located in Nuwara Eliya – in the Maskeliya area, right next to a small village called Kiriwan Eliya, to be exact. The Laxapana Falls is formed by the Maskeliya Oya, right around the extent that it forms up with the Kehelgamu Oya to form the famous Kelani River. AS of right now, the waterfall gives its name to the Laxapana Hydro-Electric Stations, which are found close to each other. These are significant sources of power for the whole country.
