Flowing down 30m and over a vast expanse of rocks 2m wide, the source of the Kanabadu Ella Fall is an aquifer. Except during times of severe drought, the flow of water is constant. Folklore has it that a giant cyclops, named Kanna Badda (hence the fall’s name), lived nearby who stole to make his living.

One day the villagers spotted him and gave chase. In order to escape, the giant is said to have run into a cave at the fall and pulled a stone across the entrance, where it has remained ever since.

Along the road between Ratnapura and Deniyaya, the fall is 2km from the village of Nedola.

Another waterfall which lies nearby is the Ethawetunu Falls (Ella). The marker below indicates the approximate location of the fall near Ulugala.
