The Deiyagala Ella Waterfall in Kalutara lies on the eastern border of the Paniyawela Mukalana in the Yagirala Forest in Walallawita DS division. The fall is fed by a stream flowing through the virgin forest of Yagirala with crystal clear water creating a number of pools.

The waterfall lies close to the  Deiyagala Hermitage which has been blamed for blocking the stream above the waterfall for a micro hydro project to provide electricity to the hermitage.  This has drastically reduced the flow of water to the waterfall.

Walallawita lies 18 km from the Welipenna exit of the Southern Expressway and 15 km from the Kurundugahahathakma exit. From Walallawita town you need to take Aviththawa road for 1.5 km until you reach a narrow road which leads to the Deyyiagala Hermitage. After travelling about 1/2 km, you will come across a narrow footbridge. The fall and be observed from the bridge itself. To reach the Hermitage you need to walk another 800 meters passing the bridge. The waterfall can be reached by going downstream for 10-20 meters after crossing this footbridge.

This is part of a 2 waterfalls in the same location, the bigger brother of the two, 11-meter-high Thotas Ella lies above the footbridge is a popular bathing place and draws huge crowds at the weekends.

Due to the closeness to the hermitage and past activities, it is prohibited to take any alcohol or musical instruments to the waterfall area.
