The Diyakerella Ella Fall flows through jungle and cascades down a 45m-high rock formation – the noise made is incredible. As the water hits the bottom, another fall is created, though only the upper section is visible through the dense foliage. The beauty of the fall is enhanced by the towering presence of the Lakkgala Mountain at Meemure village. Beneath the fall is an elephants’ corridor known as ‘Ethpara’ and there is also a monastery nearby. The stream joins the Heenganga River and later the Mahaweli River.
The fall is located in Meemure village in Kandy District (Minipe Provincial Secretariat Division) and requires a 12km trek through the jungle.
The Knuckles mountain range is home to several other waterfalls such as Dumbara Ella, Uda Duvili Ella, Veddapeni Ella, Seru Ella, Diyakerella Ella, Meemure Ella, Rathninda Ella, Kalupahana Ellla, Huluganga Ella and Rathna Ella.
