Height :30 meters
District :Nuwara Eliya

The cascading water of the 30m Mohini Ella Falls is said to resemble the flowing locks of a woman. However, superstitious villagers avoid going near it after dark, fearing that a female devil by the name of Mohini (hence the fall’s name) inhabits the area.

The fall is situated in the Nuwara Eliya District. Take the road to Nallathanniya, and 2km before reaching Nallathanniya itself, the fall is visible. The nearest town is Maskeliya.
