The wall of Aberdeen falls has a solid layer of rock and there is a belief among the people that behind this waterfall wall there is a tunnel that extends to Laxapana Falls. The place where the waterfall falls has very large sand flats and is shallow, but these sand flats collapse from time to time, so this place is in a dangerous situation.
