Lover's Leap Waterfall
Nuwara Eliya

Lovers Leap is a 98-foot falls located just outside the Nuwara Eliya town, and is a popular attraction for those visiting the town. Its source is the many streams that run off from the country's tallest mountain, Pidurutalagala, which stands like a sentinel over the town of Nuwara Eliya. The legend behind its name states that once a prince was lost while out hunting and was rescued by a damsel whom he fell in love with. Realising that the relationship would never last due to the unpopularity of it amongst his subjects, the amorous couple leapt to their death off the cliff at the head of the falls.
