The is a general mixup with between the Helboda Falls and Delta Falls.  The people around this area identifies the first waterfall on this route as the Helboda Ella Falls. This waterfall lies in the Delta Estate.  These people are not aware of a Delta Fall anywhere in the vicinity.

But quoted by Waterfall Enthusiast Ashan : ” In-between we used public transport at some occasions. We arrived early morning at Pussellawa town and from there we took another bus towards the first waterfall. People call this waterfall Helboda waterfall but after reading our literature we got to know that it was Delta Falls which arises from Delta estate. We walked 1.5Km until we reached a small waterfall which was formed by the Helboda Oya. This is a small waterfall that no one notices, it has two parts first part can be viewed through the cave above the second part, this is Helboda proper Fall.”
