Dambora Ella Fall (10m in height) was created by a waterway of the Wakoya River and was formerly known as Demala Falls as the Tamil (Dravidian/Demala) labourers used to wash here. Dambora Falls is located near Labugama Reservoir in the village of Dambora (Hanwella Divisional Secretariat), Colombo District (Avissawela Electorate)

Take the road from Hanwella to Labugama, past the old bridge at Thunmodara. After a further 1km, turn right in the direction of Dambora village and continue for 3km (1/2 km?) to the fall. (These directions were supplied by veteran journalist Piyasiri Matarage in a letter to the Sri Lanka Waterfalls Council.)

Although the published height of the waterfall is 10 meters, it is said that the waterfall is 15-20 meters. There is no proper access to the waterfall and it’s a difficult climb to reach the fall.
