Lankagama Thattu Ella Falls
Lankagama Thattu Ella Falls – by Dr Ashan Geeganage
Height :14 metres
District :Galle

The stream which creates the Lankagama Doowili Ella goes on again to create this two cascade Thattu Ella waterfall which is about 14 meters tall.

This waterfall lies on the southern border of the Sinharaja Rainforest in the Lankagama village. This fall is the 2nd waterfall of five waterfalls created by this Hariyawa water stream within a distance of less than 1 km.

The closest path to the falls which lies in the Sinharaja Rain Forest is the Neluwa – Lankagama route.

Neluwa can be reached from Colombo through 3 routes. The Falls lies close to the village of Lankagama on the Kosmulla – Lankagama road. After travelling about 7 km on this route you will also pass another beautiful waterfall called Neluwa Doowili Falls.

Travel a further 15 km (approx) to reach Lankagama. Parts of this road have been concreted but some sections are highly dilapidated. You will require a 4 wheel drive, lorry or a 3 wheeler to reach Lankagama. The waterfall can be viewed from the road itself or walk a few meters into the jungle to get a better view.

Alternatively, you can take a 3-wheeler from Neluwa. They will probably take a shorter route to Lankagama. This route has a bridge which only a 3-wheeler can go. Anything wider will find it very difficult to squeeze through. But this route will bypass the Doowili Falls, so you will have to give the 3-wheeler proper instructions.

The waterfall is not listed in the LCWF database.

You also can access the waterfall through Sinharaja Rain Forest which can be accessed through the Deniyaya – Mederipitiya route.

The waterfalls created by this stream are

Leach protection is highly recommended when hiking to these waterfalls.
