 Kosgahadola Ella Falls

Height :3 meters
District :Galle

The source of this 3m-high Kosgahadola Ella Fall is an aquifer in the 2,430 hectares of the Mulatiyana Jungle, Matara District (Hakmana Electorate). Situated in an area that is being destroyed for its natural resources, the fall has managed to escape such a fate, perhaps due to the surrounding impregnable jungle.

It is believed there used to be a monastery at this site and that elephants used to bathe in the pool here. The road leading up to the fall can be found near the Mulatiyana junction on the Matara – Marawala road.

This is a popular waterfall in the area. The waterfall can be reached by travelling approx. 2.5 km towards Kotapola from the Mulatiyana Junction. A short footpath to has been built towards the waterfall along with an observation platform.
