Nagadowa Ella Fall is a another waterfall located off the beaten track off the popular Bambarakanda Falls. Only access to the waterfall is by foot and you can also see the Uduwara fall just above this fall. The fall breaks in to several mini falls starting from the top of the mountain range.

The LCWF lists this fall as a 8 meter fall but this considering the full height from the mountain top, this waterfall is lot taller than 8 meters, possibly close or above 150 meters. It possibly has considered the last part of the fall in measuring the height or 80m has been written as 8m. Either way, the original height of 8m has been maintained for consistency.


The waterfall is reached by foot from the road leading to the Bambarakanda Falls. Go pass the Bamabarakanda falls on the Kalupahana – Ohiya road and taking the tracking path marked on the Google Earth Travel Companion File available for download here

From Kalupahana take the road to Ohiya through Bambarakanda falls. Travel time from Kalupahana approx 30–40 min’s due to road condition. The current location identified by Google Maps as the Bambarakanda Falls is wrong.
