District :Hambantota

The sources of this 25 meter high Sapugahadola Ella (Ranmale Biso Ella/Sapugaharoda Ella ) fall are the brooks flowing down the Rammale mountain range (Ranmala Kanda). It flows on to the Warapitiya Reservoir and then the Kirma River. The first part of the waterfall is a dead drop on to a ledge of about 12m in height. Then the water falls over another 12-13 meters.

During the dry season the flow is languid but when the rains come, it cascades magnificently. Tea plantations and other crops in Rammale and Wadula have taken a heavy toll on the environment, putting the fall’s existence in jeopardy.

The fall is situated near the Siththamgallena Rajamaha Viharaya, Hambantota District. From Katuwanna PC, near the Warapitiya Tank, take the Warapitiya – Uruboka road for 3km. It is 20m from the first culvert to the fall. Alternatively, take the road from Aktuwana town via Rukmalpitiya Dangalkande towards Hulankande. The fall can be found between Hulankande and Kirama.

This waterfall is also called Sapugaharoda Ella and Ranmale Biso Ella. A small hotel has been built close to this waterfall and a small ledge has been built across the stream at the bottom of the waterfall creating a small pool to bath. Due this reason, this waterfall is frequently visited by local and foreign travelers to this area.
