Previously known as ‘Kandara’ 10m high Hal Kadura Ella Falls flows along mountains and gorges finally to fall from a ridge, which give rise to its name. Situated in Matale Distric, Ratota D.S area the Water Falls’s catchments area is the eastern slope of the Hunnasgirriya Mountain and nearest town is Ukuwela.
These days the water of the fall is utilized to irrigate the fields of the Hapuvida Village. Some village believes that the small brooks springing from Kandenuwara; Kabaragala & Watagoda making an agrarian industry formed the waterfall. The water after irrigating the fields flows to the Sudu River or the White River.
It flows to the Bowatenne Reservoir, along the Yoda Canal to Kalaweva Reservoir respectively from where fields of Raja Rata (Kings country) are sustained. During the colonial era, there had been a power project harnessing the Water Falls. A case in point is the Ambalawatte Estate Tea Factory powered by this project. A traditional village industry called ‘Laaksha’ is founds in the village of Pallehapuvida.
