Algama upper fall

Height :6 meters
District :Kegalle

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.

Comming to Algama from the Attanagalla, Just before the Algama junction you will find a road towards your left after traveling 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.
