Mandaramnuwara is a small ancient village in the Nuwara Eliya district lying at altitude of 1250 meters above sea level at the foot of the Pidurutalagala in the Hanguranketha area. Kolapathana Ella is one of the large waterfalls lying at Mandaramnuwara.
This small town can be reached from Padiyapelella by taking the Mandaram Nuwara road and traveling about 12 kms of narrow and bending road with a unspoiled beautiful scenery all the way.
To reach the waterfall, take Mandaram Nuwara Mandaramnuwara Road from Padiyapelella. There is public transport available on this route. Once you reach Mandaram Nuwara, travel about 500 meters towards the Udawela Maha Vidyalaya (school) until you reach the old tea factory. Form here, continue on the concrete laid road for further 500 meters and turn right from the junction. This road ends after about 200m.
Lorries collecting vegetables from farmers travel up to this point. From here you need to hike a further 2km along the un mapped foot paths to reach this waterfall which lies about 1500 meters above sea level. Mandaram Nuwara lies 1250 meters above sea level.
To access this fall, a guide from the Mandaram Nuwara area is necessary since it will be too easy to get lost in the forest without a clear mapped path to the fall. This waterfall is not listed in the LCWF database.
