Let's Talk About Galboda Falls
Why it is called Galboda? The name meaning is ‘fall adjoining the stone’. While talking about Galboda village. It is an isolated village where is located between Nawalapitiya and Watawala. We cannot see a well-developed road system yet. But the most important thing is we can travel to this place with a lot of joyful memories.
This is the 98ft(30m) high waterfall and the width range is 9.8ft(3 m) – 20ft(6 m) which is depending on the season. If you reach Nawalapitiya by train. Next, you have to come 2Km. Because it is 2Km away from the railway station. That area is so close to Watawala. It has heavy rainfall and the waterfall is ever young. Talking about annual rainfall, it is exceeded 4500mm, and 60% of the rain coming from the southwest monsoon, and from January to February, it is the dry season.
The Location of Galboda Falls
Here, I am going to let you know about the location of Galboda falls which is in Nawalapitiya, Nuwara Eliya District. If you decide to travel Colombo to Badulla by train. Then, do not miss this place. I do not want to talk about Colombo to Badulla railway road. Because everyone knows, that road attractive many visitors’ not only local travelers’ but also foreigners. You can get one of the four express trains which are Colombo heading to Badulla and train stops at Galboda station. You can go by Nawalapitiya to the Galboda bus. But traveling by train is much more fun. You can reach this place within 2-3 hours by train. Although this is the best place, anyone who wants to get a traveling experience with a cool climate. Why I am talking about this place is, I thought this place is not much popular among travel people and I hope they will enjoy by visiting here.
