The 60m high Diyavini Ella (Diyawini Ella) waterfall forms part of a tributary of the Diyavini River, which is in a jungle 8km east of Balangoda, south of Vikiliya. The tributary, together with another stream created by the Diyavini River, flows into the Walawe River. The Devagiri Vihare (temple), worth a visit, and an ancient Dagoba (Buddhist shrine) overgrown by the jungle are nearby. Locals believe that a treasure trove is buried in the vicinity and that a village head disappeared when he tried to find it. They also maintain that Brahmin scripts are inscribed in caves and further assert that there are three stone vessels, each 3m deep, located here.

Take the Balangoda – Weligapola road to Kapugala road and the ancient village of Diyavini. The fall is located near the old Rajamaha Vihare (temple)

The Diyawini waterfall lies close to the ancient Sri Devagiri Raja Maha Viharaya and can be seen from over 2 km away. It is said that you can clearly see ‘Naga’ carvings in the middle section of the waterfall during the dry season.
