This 3m fall is set among the enchanting evergreen forest of the Knuckles mountain range, the latter of which is said to resemble the fingers of a clenched fist. A suspension bridge spanning the falls adds the finishing touch to an already beautiful scene.
The fall’s popularity as a visitor attraction continues despite the fact that up to May 2002, 17 people have been killed while either bathing or attempting to clamber over nearby rocks.
At the nearby Wanarani Colony, a project to provide drinking water for 44 houses, was launched under the guidance of three local women.
The mini Bambarakiri Ella Falls is a small fall created on a stream created by spitting the flow of water at the top of the falls. To reach this site, walk a few meters in the jungle on the footpath after crossing the suspension bridge.
The fall is situated near Rattota town in the Matale District, along the shortcut to Wasgasmuwa National Park. Take the Matale-Ilukumbura road to the Bamarakiri Falls bend, which is 1km past Rattota town, where the fall is to be found.
