Height :3 meters
District :Ratnapura

Folklore surrounds the beautifully cascading Bisodola Falls. It is said it was here that the concubines of Sri Lanka’s ancient King Mayadunne bathed and frolicked. One such absent-minded mistress left her jewellery on the riverbank, which was stolen by a mysterious fall dwelling eel. Villagers say that in periods of drought both the eel and the stolen treasure are visible, and that the laughter of the concubines can also be heard.

The surrounding area of the fall has become a popular place to participate in watersports. Eheliyagoda is the nearest city to the Bisodola Falls. To reach it, take the Ratnapura – Eheliyagoda road, and turn off at Eheliyagoda junction for Dehiovita. Continue for 1km through the border of the Eheliyagoda Rubber Estate.
