The Ramboda Ella (Puna Ella) double fall  is unique in the ‘Y’ form where two waterfalls with two water sources merge in to one at the bottom. The water in the fall on the left is from the Puna Oya, A canal which comes through the forest reserve above.

The fall on the right hand side is made up from water from Pundalu Oya which flows through cultivated land above. Most of the year the fall flowing through the Pandalu Oya carry more volume but during periods of long drought the role is reversed. The water on flowing on the left fall remains more or less the same while the water on the other fall reduces significantly.

The Lanka Council of Waterfalls (LCWF) has identified the height of the Puna falls as 6 meters but this fall is atleast 100m in height. It is possible that the LCWF puna falls lies somewhere else. This waterfall is known by many names. Puna Ella (Puna Falls) and Poonawa Ella ( Poonawa Falls) are the most popular. Since the the two falls are originated out of Puna Oya and Pundalu Oya, The two are separately called Pundalu Oya Ella and Puna Ella. But in general the waterfall referred to as Pundalu Oya Falls is the Dunsinane Falls in Nuwara Eliya District. This waterfall is also seems to be called Ramboda Ella Falls by some.

This fall can be seen on Peradeniya – Nuwara Eliya Route between Pussellawa and Ramboda.
