Deraniyagala – Noori Road is dotted with many waterfalls, Some known and many un named and unknown. Unfortunately water on the most of these waterfalls have been diverted to mini hydro power plants reducing the water volumes on these waterfalls. Therefore these waterfalls are best viewed during the rainy season when the water volumes are at highest.
The Rakka Ella Falls on Kadiran Oya in the area of Polgaswatte is one of such waterfalls known only by the locals flowing unseen away from the Noori Road.
The Kadiran Oya creates a string of waterfalls in the Polgaswatte area. The first waterfall on this sting is Rakka Ella Fall meaning Rack fall. The waterfall flows over a formation of rock which resembles a wide stair way. The stream the goes around a U shaped bend and creates the two segment Kaluwala Ella Falls which is about 4 meters in height . This is fall lies about 150 meters away from the Rakka Ella Fall. The stream continues further 75 meters downstream and creates the Wee Kotana Ella Fall which is approximately 5 meters in height.
