According to folklore, the Kumari Ella Fall derives its name from King Sitawaka Rajasinhe’s daughter, Kumari, as she is said to have drowned in the water. It is only 4m in height. The two streams from Pittukande Mountain and Dukkalahelena Mountain meet with two other streams, one from Hewainna and one from Illukovil, at the Puwakpitiya Aman Oya (river).

This then flows onto the Kelani River at Ambangama. Take the Colombo high-level road and turn along Hewahinna road. The fall is 2km along this road.

This waterfall is located in the village of Hewainna and is also known as “Kumari Wala Ella“.
