Little Haven


When I visited Bambarakiri Ella last year, I missed this smaller waterfall named as Punchi Bambarakiri Ella. So, this time when I came to Knuckles Range I made sure I see both.

I crossed the suspension bridge and saw the bigger falls and then walked further steps down and came to this little haven. It is a small waterfall, nevertheless an excellent place.

To see more scenic images, explore this wonderful site - Scenic Sunday.

This is a beautiful little waterfall with a pretty pool. I think it would be a great place to sit and enjoy the beauty after a hike.

George,
Yep, I liked the surrounding of the falls a lot - The pool, rocky outcrop etc. Thanks for your comments.

Sometimes the small waterfalls are even more gorgeous than the big ones... It's all about the setting also...

Great picture.

Betsy,
Yes, it is all about the setting, not just the falls. That is why some of the smalle waterfalls are quite beautiful.

Frieda,
Thanks very much.

Really pretty. Followed the links to the suspension bridge too. That was just awesome. Who maintains these bridges?. Do locals use it or just for the tourists.

Breathtaking!

I am now in Haiti. You can take a look at my new blog: jacmelexpress.blogspot.com

Sbarrkum,
The suspension bridge is badly maintained. I saw a few holes and missing planks last time when I came here and by this year damaged planks have increased quite a lot. The whole walking over the bridge thing looks a bit rickety to me.
Locals also use it but I think this was mainly done for the visitors.
I am not sure who built it nor who is responsible for the maintenance. Anyway must check it out :)

Thanks for your comments.
