The 9m-high Halmehi Ella Fall originates from a stream in Lihinigala, which is joined by another small brook. As with Hal Falls, local villagers claim to hear the sound of clothes being washed coming from the water.
The 1.5km route to the fall from Mapalana village, Sri Paladabedda GS area (22km from Ratnapura), is difficult.
The route to the waterfall lies in the same route to the more popular Mapalana (Mapanana) Falls. There is a small path to the left little before the Mapalana Falls.
