Andanwala Falls

Height :12 metres
District :Matale

Beginning from the Hanguranketha Mountain, and flowing to Suduganga River, the 12m Andanwala Falls is situated in Matale District Ukuwela PS (Provincial Secretariat) Division, in the Laliambe Village.

Previously it was a perennial fall, but in the 90’s decade due to the illegal felling of trees the water volume had reduced and is presently is facing the possibility of being evanesce. Another contributing factor is the damming of the upper reach of the fall, vitiating the volume of the cascade falling to a pool which resembling a bed, thus giving rise to its name.
