This 6m Algama Ella Waterfall can be viewed from close range due to a convenient nearby rocky ledge. After the fall, the flow of the water is often obscured as it flows through a narrow gap under rocks. Further downstream, a 3m-long crevasse can be found, and the water is once again hidden amongst the branches of trees, only to emerge again beneath a rock protuberance.

Situated in the Kegalle District, Dedigama Electorate. Head from Colombo along the Colombo – Kandy road to the Pasyala four-way junction and turn right to follow the Attanagalla road for around 4km. At Haggala junction, turn left onto the Algama road, pass through Algama and continue to Uduwaka where the fall can be found.

Coming to Algama from the Attanagalla, Just before the Algama junction you will find a road towards your left after travelling about 1.5Km you will find a place to the left saying “Vehicle park of Algama Falls”. From here you need to get to the stream and travel upstream & please note there are many visitors, especially during the weekends so try and get there as early as possible. There are three waterfalls, so if you are interested travel upstream but please be careful because the rocks are slippery.

Its advised to pay and park your vehicle in one of the many gardens which have turned into vehicle parks. Organized gangs let the air out of the tyres of vehicles not parked in their gardens. Therefore it’s better to pay this protection money and park somewhere.
