The Ella Uda Ella Falls (Kahana Ella) takes its water from the Kodikande Mountain and the Koswatte Canal network, which flows through rock and tree-lined valleys, before cascading from a cliff at the point of the fall. A species of fish, known locally as mahseer (Tor khudree), thrives here.

Unfortunately, an organized gang of drug addicts operate in the area and have been known to release an itch-inducing plant mixture into the water upstream from bathers, and then sell the unsuspecting individuals coconut oil as a remedy, thus funding their habit.

However, that aside, a good view of the Colombo District’s highest mountain is possible from the fall.

The Ella Uda Ella Falls is located in the Colombo District, Avissawella Electorate at Hanwella. To reach it, take the Hanwella road and turn off near the Thummodara Old Bridge, then continue for a further 10km to the Illuovita area.
