Diyawetena Ella (Diyawetenella) Fall is a fairly large waterfall located in the Alawathugoda village in the Badulla District on the border of the Nuwara Eliya District. This village lies between the Keppatipola – Boralanda road at the 8th kilometer post.

The village consists of Ratne, Kudumirisweladova, Galwetathenna, Diyawetenella, Gepalawalgoda, Kiriwanahinna, Bogasella and Pansalakotuwa areas. The Diyawetenella and Ratne lie at the higher elevation areas.

The area in which the waterfall lies is also called Amuna because the dam built across the oya above the Diyawetenella diverts water to the Ratne area.

There is another smaller waterfall called Mahawala Ella just below the Diyawetenella Ella.

You can also see the “Pandas Gala”, or the ‘Five Thousand Rock’ which is a natural rock which marks 5000 feet above sea level. Clearing of the Forest above 5000 feet is banned to protect the water sources.

To Reach the waterfall, you need to travel up to the Alawatugoda temple (Sri Wijayawardhanaramaya) on the Boralanda – Keppatipola road. The temple lies 5 kilometres from Boralanda and 8.5 km from Kepetipola. From here you need to towards the Alawathugoda village and the total distance to to the fall is about 2 km. There is no clear path to the fall and you need to walk across vegetable cultivated land to reach it.
