According to villagers, this waterfall was earlier known as Gamith Kanda Falls (ගමිත් කන්ද ඇල්ල). However after multiple deaths were reported on this fall, it became to known as Minee Ella which literary means “Corpse Waterfall“.
It is said that 2 couples had jumped to death from this fall, an intoxicated boy had fallen off from the top and some cows which had been washed away due to a flash flood upstream had been found dead at this fall.
