We decided to hire a car and get there ourselves, more signage would be a big help as it was a little hard finding. Once there it is a steep climb but you do get great photos from the top. Being the wet season we pretty much had the place to ourselves, there was great water flows and plenty of... More

We called by to see this attraction as we had read so much about it. The gardens in the village are a credit to the village folk and the fali is well cared for. The steps leading down to the rocks are quite steep and not for everyone, admittedly we only went halfway to the platform to take photos as... More

Great fun, probably more for kids though. Lots of people and kind of takes away the fun when you have to line up for one sliding rock. It's 5 tala per person for entry.

We got a little lost on our way to the sliding rocks, there are not a lot of signs but we did get there eventually. It is the perfect spot on a hot, humid day as the water is so fresh and cool. There are plenty of stairs on the way down but you can get some great shots from... More

Steep stairs to walk down to get to the sliding rocks but definitely worth it. Had so much fun here.

Nice place to cool off in the waterholes, and fun sliding down the rocks. Is a bit of a hike to get to, with lots of steep stairs to get down to the rock pools. Definitely not one to do if you have any mobility challenges!!

Really enjoyed my time visiting sliding rocks with my family. The lady at the car park was so nice and welcoming and even warned us not to take valued possessions down to the falls as there had been many thefts prior to our visit. Loved the vibe down at the falls, you find yourself encouraging complete strangers to go down... More
