Dear Niro,

There are still doubts about the naming of these beauties...

Hi Tony ka,

Quote from: Tony on July 20, 2013, 08:23:40 PM
I have a doubt about the Rajamale falls near the Makara thorana at Nallathanniya as I discussed with u earlier and there is a another fall close, by the same name. The priest near the makara thorana told me it's 'Sri para ella'  but still I uv a doubt. I am not a hardcore waterfall lover or a hunter but I would like if someone can clarify this please!

Yes I think the identity is still a confusion. The priest who have told you may be right. As I have attached the description of this waterfall from the book which I bought recently called "Rhythm of cascades" by MSNL De Costa. It is clearly mentioned as the name Sripada falls as this is one of the major falls coming from Adam's Peak itself. As far as I heard before the Gartmore, Murray and Seethagangula falls all called Sripada or Adams peak Falls. But all that maybe questionable. Ya so your doubt is reasonable. most probably this is not Rajamale falls and this could be the genuine Sri Pada falls. Thanks for your valuable feedback and comments.

Regards - Shareez

Even Sri was correctly argued regarding few in an earlier trip report.

Hi Ranshan,
Thanks for your comment. Yes Rajamale fall is visible  to Hatton-Sri pada trail.
I don't know this peak field falls flows from Gawarawila mountain.
