Hi Shareez,

This is amazing. Waterfalls are very healthy and great to see them in this manner. Wonderful report. Loved every bit of it.
How was the road condition all the way? Can it be made with a low ground clearance car?
Regarding Saree falls, is that 500m stretch uphill from Bambarella motorable or have to walk? If we have to walk, how long will it take?
Regarding overall encounters, is Bambarella area (with all waterfall sightings) safe and ok for a family trip?
Sorry for lot of questions. I have not been to this side of Knuckles and want to go there after some rain. Dilhans' report brought up the interest before and yours made it a must.
Last time when we visited Sera ella it had just little water flowing around the corner. We had to take pictures not of the falls but of the rocks around the base pool  Grin Grin

Nice report Shareez, It is great to know that Hulugaga Falls is getting new viewing stage. I had to go to a shop back balcony to see it two years ago.

Cheers!

Hi Shareez,
Wonderful trip report flooded with waterfalls.

I stayed at 'Knuckles View Holiday bungalow" in Bambarella some time back but didn't try to see these waterfalls as our crowd was not interested in walking. I saw only the Huluganga fall.
It seems that you have not climbed Riverston up to the SLT tower. Actually it's an interesting walk against the strong blow.

Thanks buddy for sharing this experience.
Best Regards,
Wije
