|Height :||12 metres|
Theli Ella is a waterfall created by the Gurugoda Oya lying off the Nelundeniya – Galapitamada close to the Dedigama. Access to this 12m waterfall is difficult which lies far way from any road. Forklore states that King Walagamba was hiding close waterfall during his excile and one of his queens lost her neckless at the fall giving it the name “Theli Ella”. In 2013 it was reported in media that all the garbage collected from Warakapola Town was being dumped in the area of Theli Ella. Current status is unknown.
Based on this report, Theli Ella can be reached by taking the Galapitamada Road and exiting at Thuntota Junction. From here you have walk through rubber estates for about 4 km to reach the fall.
