Bo Ella Falls – බෝ ඇල්ල
|Height :||3 meters|
This 3m tall Bo Ella Fall is served by a minor bo (Ficus religiosa) leaf-shaped stream (formed by the Ma Oya [river]) that begins in the Aranayake Rassawa Mountain, and also serves the Ahupini Falls. Before the Bo Falls the water flows through rocks to form two distinct streams and cascades into a large rock pool, where it exits through a 2m opening.
This is a popular bathing and picnic location among the locals.-0-
