Formerly known as ‘Thevatura Falls’ (Tea Waterfall), the Peratas Tea Estate and factory are located above. The Devathura Ella Falls cascades over several platforms, thought only a 10m section is visible from the road, and eventually joins the Kotmale Reservoir.

The surrounding area is rich in both flora and fauna, with plant life including erebadu (Erythrina Indica). This makes for a serene setting, thus it is popular with visitors.

The waterfall lies just before the new Ramboda Tunnel. Another attraction close this waterfall is the old Nuwara Eliya road which was used before Ramboda Tunnel was built. Today this road looks quite narrow and not being used for  vehicle traffic. Walking about 20 meters on this road you can see how one of the rock has been cut in to build the road during the British occupation.

Alternate names : Devathura Ella, Dewathura Ella , Thevathura Ella , Thewathura Ella
