This 30m-high Papulagala Ella Fall is located 1530m up the northern slope of Papulagala Mountain. The stream then flows via Uggallkaltota to the Walawe River.

This is a seasonal waterfall seen only during rains. Not much information is available on this waterfall but Eberhard Kautzsch in his “A guide to waterfalls of Sri Lanka” describes this waterfall ;

“5 km east f Belihul Oya, the high level road A4 passes Lower Hiralouvah, where a steep estate road with a series of narrow hair pin bends takes one to Upper Hiralouvah (1500 m NN). This part of the Brampton tea estate is boardwred in the North by a rock range flanked by Mt. Papulagala (1530n NN). During the rains a brook forms in to a waterfall which can be seen from the A4 road. The altitude of the waterfall is estimated to be 30m. The road to Upper Hiralouvah is motorable by tractor or jeep. (4km). The stream is a tributary of Weli Oya which joins Walawe Ganga near Uggalkaltota”
