Kosgama Ella Falls is a generally unknown waterfall on the Panvila-Bambarella road. This route is well known for the 75-meter Huluganga Ella Fall which lies in the Hulunganga Town
Passing Huluganga Falls, and travelling a further 450 meters towards the Bambarella, you will reach the Kosgama Bridge, an ancient steel bridge across a stream. The waterfall lies beneath this bridge and continues further down. Unfortunately, part of the water on the stream is diverted using a canal towards a mini hydro project leaving the water available to the fall.
This waterfall has no formal name and is simply called by the village in which it lies, Kosgama.
The photos above were taken during a time the concrete canal was damaged and the water leaked back the stream. The water streams on the left of the photos is in fact the water flowing from the damaged canal.
This waterfall is not listed in the database of the Lanka Council of Waterfalls (LCWF).
