Hi Niro

As usual, well compiled report with typical Niro-esque sign postings...
Great one buddy and love the view of Kudalu Ella and I'm yet to go see her...
Thanks for the lovely report and would've loved to see the Idalgashinna covered in mist.

Cheers

Hi Niroshan

Nice detailed report. I am little confused over the Kudalu Ella and Upper Diyaluma Ella. The photo you posted seems to be the Upper Diyaluma Fall. I thought Kudalu Fall was a seperate waterfall which lies close to the Koslanda - Poonagala Road. Google map here ->  (http://amazinglanka.com/wp/kudalu-ella/) . Wrong ?

Hi Dr Niro...

Have heard that there are few elephants roaming around at the top of Diyaluma falls? and if I am not mistaken, I have learned that the highest railway station in SL is Pattipola (please correct me if I am wrong), where as you have mentioned it as Idalgashinna???

Nice and as always detailed report with few stunning photos, thanks a million for sharing....

Cheers!!!

Hello Niroshan,

wonderful report. lovely photos. enjoyed a lot.
btw, you have mentioned "Idalgashinna-highest railway station in Sri Lankan railway line" . isn't it the Pattipola station situated at the highest altitude..?

Hi Tony
Thanks for your comment. Yes we were warned by villagers about wild elephants in upper part of Diyaluma falls. And they asked us to get into the water stream if we come across wild elephants. Sorry for my mistake. Idlgashinna not the highest railway station in SriLanka. It  is Pattipola.
Thanks

Hi Nishan,
Thanks for your comment. The water fall glossary and waterfall book written by Edgar give same description as kudalu falls is this. This might be Upper  Diyaluma  falls  as well.
