|Height :||?? meters|
|District :||Nuwara Eliya|
Mandawala Ella Waterfall is one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the Hanguranketha area well hidden from the public lying in the village of Ekiriya.
To reach the waterfall, take the Galaha Road for 1.2 km and from the Poramadulla junction take th Poramadulla – Palle Bowala Road. After travelling about 4.5 kilometers you will reach Diggalpoththa 3 way junction. Take the Hinnapita road to the left for further 500 meters on and you will reach a place locally known as Valle Bodhiya where you will find a footpath towards the Mandawala Ella. 200 meters on this footpath will take you to the bottom of this waterfall.
The waterfall has not been spoilt by the human activity so far. This may be due to its location being far off any popular travel paths and being relatively unknown outside the village.
As with many waterfalls, the best time to visit this is during the rainy season when the water flow is high.
The fall is situated at the border between Pallepalpita and Udapalpita in the Kegalle District’s Warakapola Provincial Secretariat Division’s (PSD), Weragala village area. To get there, take the bus from Warakapola town across Galapitamada to Weragala. Alternatively, at the Nelumdeniya junction, board a bus from Dedigama to Galapitamada. Alight at Kewuldeniya and trek for a distance of about 6km to the fall.
