Waterfalls
In Sr
i Lanka









Below mentioned waterfalls are not more than 100ft in height.



Aradunu
Falls


The 100ft (30m) high Aradunu Fall is so named because of its bow shape. According to folklore, King Walagamba took refuge from the South Indian invaders inside a cave found near the fall. There is also said to be a tunnel at the rear of the fall that leads up to Passara Raja Maha Vihara. Currently, the fall is dammed for the nearby tea factory and hydro-electricity project. As a result, the fall can only be visited during the dry seasons, when turbines are inactive.

Situated in the Badulla District's Passara Electorate on the Loggalla Oya, which begins in the Namunukula mountain range, this fall flows through an abandoned savannah grassland that is now used for agriculture.

The nearest town is Passara. From there, head along the Madolsima road for 3km and turn left after the power loom, down a narrow road that leads to the fall.

Bopath Ella is a spectacular waterfall situated close to Colombo. It is situated in the Rathnapura District, Kuruwita Divisional Secretariat at Agalawatte village. It is 86kms away from Colombo. Take the road from Colombo to Rathnapura (A4) and turn off at Hikgasthenna, drive along the Agalawatte road upto Devipahala village. After 5km the fall is reached. It will take 3 hrs from the city of Colombo.

The fall has a height of 100 ft (30meters). The name Bopath Ella derives from its perfect heart-shaped head as three cascades, much like the leaf of the sacred Bo tree (Ficus religiosa). “Bopath” means leaves of the Bo tree. ("Bo" t

ree is a sacred tree in Sri Lanka among Buddhists)

Its source is the “Kuruganga” (River “Kuru”) that later joins the “Kaluganga” (River Kalu) at “Kurugaomaodara”. The area where the waterfall joins the river is very broad, sandy and sallow.

The fall is rich in bio-diversity. The surrounding plant and tree life includes attikka, kumbuk, midella, dun, para, ginihota, rathmadiya, ketala, and many more. There are many varieties of orchids too. Animal species include wild boar,

meemina deer and reptiles. The water is home to many species of fish including bulathhapaya, lellu, magura, korali, sonnu and eel.



The average temperature of the area is 26.9 – 27.8 degrees Celsius and the annual rainfall of the fall’s catchment area is 5080mm. The mean speed of the flow is 6 cubic metres per second. The upper reach of the fall is made up of granite an

d biotite virgin, and is covered by sand. The water from the fall irrigates the paddy fields of the Udakada and Kuruwita areas.

Many are the folk legends connected with Bopath Ella. One is about a young man from Colombo, who visited the falls and on losing his way was helped and sheltered by a local village girl. A romance developed between the two and she became pregnant before his departure. He left promising to return but never did. Overcome with

grief, she took her own life by plunging into the fall. Villagers say that her ghost haunts the fall. She is supposed to appear as a floating blue light.

You are advised not to bath as the base of the waterfall as it could be dangerous because of flash floods. The fall is a favorite picnic spot because it is close by city of Colombo.



Dehigolla Falls



Dehigolla Falls is 100ft (30m) in height and its source is the reserve on the 1883m-high Knuckles mountain range, Kandy District. On the Kandy - Teldeniya - Hunnasgiriya road near the Dehigolla Tea Factory, it is possible to view the fall as it cascades from a huge protruding rock formation.

Afterwards the water flows on to the Henni Oya (river), then the Hulu River and finally into the Mahaweli River.




Diya Egirena Falls
– Diyawegire
na Falls



This fall is 100ft (30m) fall which was previously known as 'Diyawegirena Falls', denoting its perennial flow, but underwent dialectal change to its present form. The plants in the surrounding Dedugala Reserve have valuable medicinal qualities but are being pilfered by unscrupulous thieves who sell them as ornamental plants.

The fall is located at Pallampitiya village in the Bulathkohupitiya Divisional Secretariat, Kegalle District. It is 96 km from Colombo, 24 km from Navalapitiya and 3 km from Dolosbage.





Galaboda Waterfall





Galaboda is a small village locate in between Watawala & Nawalapitiya. The main access to the village is the railway track. There is a beautiful waterfall higher than 30m, but the width ranges from between 3m and 6m, depending o

n the season with a distance of 1-2km from the railway station, known as Galaboda waterfall. Since the area is closed to Watawala where the highest rainfall is received out of the country, the waterfall is ever young. Annual rainfall here exceeds 4500mm, 60% of the rain coming from the south-west monsoon (dry season is January to February).


At certain times of year, the water also cascades in two streams. Growing in the surrounding woodland is a rare species of orchid and the vicinity is home to a wide variety of wildlife. Among them are 12 species of reptile and four are only found in Sri Lanka. The upper section of the fall is unique in its biodiversity, thus it is of paramo

unt importance to limit any potential danger to the area.

The name of the fall, (Galboda means 'fall

adjoining the stone') is said to derive from the large boulder situated at its foot, though another theory is that the water here is heavier than anywhere else on the island.



Hadun Ella Falls


This waterfall is (100ft) 30m tall and situated near Kithulgala and it joins Kelani ganga.


In Sinhala "Hadun" means sandal wood. We don't know whether there was a sandal forest close by or any smell from the water. Still it is called Hadun Ella. This is not easily reached. Closer by is the famous "Beli Lena" caves (where "the 15,000years history" of Sri Lankan were hidden).






The Lovers Leap Ella


LOVERS' LEAP FALL is a beautiful 100ft (30m) fall which commences from the streams and brooks of Sri Lanka's highest mountain, the Piduruthalagala (2524m). It flows over hard granite ledges and the water is collected in a tank and used for drinking. In dry spells, the flow is weak.


The fall is said to derive its name from the tragic tale of a prince, who while hunting in the jungle, lost his way. He was rescued by a beautiful damsel, and the two became inseparable lovers. But the match was not to the liking of the prince's subjects, so the two decided to le ap from the top of the fall to their death. Superstitious villagers avoid the fall at night.

It is one of the many picturesque waterfalls found throughout Sri Lanka's Central Province. Only a few of them can be viewed with ease. The falls can be s

een from the town Nuwara Eliya. The fall is situated in Hava Eliya, 1.5km from Nuwara Eliya.

These days the consociation covers an extent of 4550 hectares, which is 1/3 of the Nuckles Forest. This area supplies about 45% of the islands spice output.

This fall’s height is about 6ft (2m). The closest that falls down the rapids of the lower reaches of the Walawe ganga is at a riverine spot called Abarana Ella (the falls of the ornaments of queens of the dim past) when kings and queens ruled over the realms of Ruhuna Rata in the deep south.

This fascinating riverine spot is located off the Pelmadulla-Embilipitiya-Nonagama Highway about 12 miles away, near Hedawinna-Pallerotte from where a deviation has to be made off the Muravasihena Branch Irrigation Field Channel. About one mile away from there, the trudge is by foot through the farmers' bountiful rice fields and their settlements. Then across the field irrigation channel of the Liyangastota constructed down the lower reaches of this meandering Walawe ganga. Another route is to come through Ridiyagama Tank (off Ambalantota), where there is a Circuit Bungalow. From there one has walk on a rugged pathway one mile away to reach Abarana Ella. It is also accessible via Nonagama Junction on its main highway, where the distance to Hedawinna (the deviation to reach Abarana Ella) is about four miles which is quite accessible to any type of vehicle as it is on its main highway.

Here is a small but beautiful waterfall cascading around a rockoutrop that peeps out in its middle. From there it falls in a murmur, then gallops over other larger rock boulders finally falling into a boisterous rockpool, thereafter joining the main stream of the Walawe ganga. During the rainy season, (October-January), this tiny water fall is in full activity that the din of its roar could be heard from even a distance.

Abarana Ella is wrapped in a hoary legend reminiscent of a certain king called Vijaya Bahu of the 12th century A.D., reigned in this part of Ruhuna Rata. He had to wage a war in another foreign country. So the king took leave of his two consorts and told them that if he were to win the war, he would put up a white flag on the ship he was sailing back, if he lost, a red flag would be hoisted. However, news reached them that the king had won his victorious war. So in high glee, the two consorts attired in the best of their royal costumes heavily decked with glittering jewels, golden earrings awaited the arrival of the king to welcome him. But in another few moments, there came up a red flag, when the two queens were plunged into despondency and utter frustration, as there was no way of living on the loss of their beloved king. So the two consorts in their full costumes, adorned with jewellery ran towards the Walawe ganga, plunged themselves into the flowing waters, only to frown themselves in a watery grave. Later when the king came to know of this tragedy, and repented for the practical joke he had had played on them.

He too in unbearable grief, jumped into the river and was drowned in the same evil fate that overtook his two consorts. Old timers living on the riverine of this Walawe ganga, when gemming they had come across some remnants of the submerged jewellery and other valuable treasures. Even a gold-plaited kris knife was among the finds.
