Pandioya Falls is 45m in height and enclosed by woodland. Its name derives from the ‘pandi’ (Garra ceylonensis) species of fish that are a formidable sight swimming upstream along the rocks, against the flow of water. The fall’s source is the Pandi River, which springs from the nearby Bathgurula Mountain (1045m), south-west of the Sri Pada Reserve. It later flows to the Kaluganga River. Bambarakande Mountain provides a stunning backdrop.
