The name of this 30m Lihiniyan Kelina Ella Fall is derived from the edible-nest swift (Collocalia unicolor), which are attracted by the dark environment. Local villagers say that an impending drought is signified by a ghost-like procession seen moving across the fall. To combat the onset of such droughts, the villagers pay homage to the Kohomba deity.
The fall can be found in the Pelmadulla Electorate, cascading from the east of the Pathakade Segapuli Mountain, and linked to the Pulun Dola. Take the Ratnapura to Pelmadulla road to the Pathakade village Bikku training college to reach it.
