Ratna Ella (Navarathna Ella) Fall

Ratna Ella (Navarathna Ella) Fall – by Dr Ashan Geeganage

Height :101 meters
District :Kandy

The 101m Ratna Ella (Navarathna Ella) fall is the highest in the Kandy region and the stream that serves it irrigates the paddy fields of the surrounding villages.

Superstitious villagers say that there were seven vessels filled with precious stones hidden close to the fall, but that five have now been found. However, anyone attempting to find the final two will meet an untimely death at the bottom of the fall.

From Hasaka go to “Ratna Ella wasama” village. From this village there is a pathway along a small stream. after about 3km you will come across a bunt which is built across the Hasalaka Oya. There is a another footpath (just before the bunt on the right hand side) from here to the Ratna Ella.

There is another 30m waterfall in the vicinity called Kaluwa Wetuna Ella. This waterfall too can be reached on the same foot path.

Alternate Names : Ratna Ella, Rathna Ella, Nawaratna Ella, Nawarathna Ella, Ratne Ella, Rathne Ella, Nawaratne Ella, Nawarathne Ella, Navaratna Ella, Navarathna Ella
