Dripping Rock at Halgolla Tea Estate in Yatiyanthota
For those who visit Olu Ella in Yatiyanthota, a good diversion is the Wewalthalawa (Wewiyathalawa) plateau belonging to the Halgolla Tea Estate. Halfway on the winding narrow road which leads to Wewalthalawa is vertical rock named the Dripping Rock for that a small stream of water at the top of the rock falls over the vertical face of the rock producing a eternal shower at the bottom.
Going under this rock, one can experience the icy cold drops of water prickling through your skin. It is said that the water drips throughout the year. This location also serves as a place of worship for the Hindu Estate workers in the estate.
This road is a estate road belonging to the Halgolla Tea Estate and begins at its tea factory. You will need to buy a ticket to enter the road from here.
