The St. Clair’s Falls is a very scenic waterfall that it situated on the Colombo – Nuwara Eliya route. This waterfall borders the St.Clair’s tea estates. In fact, it plunges right at the bottom of these tea estates.
The entire tea estate offers different fantastic views of this waterfall, the fast mountain stream and the stunning valley downstream. Additionally, there are brilliant designated and non-designated view points of this waterfall that fall on the route to Nuwara Eliya. All these spots are located at close distance to each other.
It was nearing sunset time when I first saw this waterfall from the St. Clair’s tea estate. The entire place oozed beauty. The soft glow of the evening sun just accentuated this nature’s bounty.
In fact, this is a very popular spot with local and international tourists. They get to enjoy the tea estates, the waterfall, the surrounding valley, the great sunshine and pleasant weather and all these with a hot cup of tea in their hand.
The St. Clair’s waterfall is situated at Thalawakele, which is small hill station located in the central highlands of Sri Lanka.
