Aberdeen Falls

Standing at 322 ft, Aberdeen falls is ranked the 18th highest waterfall in the island. Off the remote village of Ginigathena, this hidden treasure is worth hunting down. With two plunge pools at different levels, the trek there promises breathtaking views. The path to finding the waterfall could be tricky for some but following these instructions will help you along your way. From Ginigathena town, proceed along Ambatale Road, head to the Buddha statue found at the end of the road. Here you need to park your vehicle and walk about 1.2 km along the road leading to the falls. The attraction is well known amongst the locals so anyone you see in the area will always be more than happy to point you in the right direction. Note; the hike to the base pools can attract leaches so being prepared to ward them off with salt and lighters is a good idea, especially during the wet season.
