In the distant past, this waterfall was known as the 'Alidona' waterfall. The name 'Aberdeen' was given to a nearby tea estate during colonial times when it was under the control of a foreign plantation empire. Today, the 'Ali Dona' waterfall is familiar to the people of our country known as Aberdeen Falls.
