This waterfall starts from the Vanilla Hills of Sinharaja and falls into the Pethiyakanda River, which joins the Kosgulana River, the Kukule River and finally the Kalu River. On the Kalawana-Veddagala main road you will come across the Sinharaja main entrance. After traveling about 5 km along that road, you will pass the entrance point to Sinharaja, enter the road on the left and from there you will reach the village of Pitakele and after about 2 km you will reach the falls. After descending about 200 feet from the main road, you will see a beautiful waterfall. 

Pitakale Falls is located outside the boundaries of the Sinharaja Reserve and does not require a special permit or ticket to visit the falls. This is ideal for bathing. There is a small cave at the bottom of the waterfall. In addition, there are plenty of shallow pools above and below the falls.
