The stream originates from the Burangamuwa Forest Reserve and flows to the Thini River. Three beautiful pools form at the top of the rock before the water cascades down over two rock ledges, creating the 45m-high Thini Oya Ella Fall. The river continues to the Hirigadu River and then the Walawe River. Formerly called Biso Falls, today it is also known as Besam Falls.

The three pools above the waterfall is known as “Walawal Thuna” or the the “three pools”.

Take the road from Balangoda towards Bangalawatte for 20km to the village of Pambagola (Ratnapura) District. From here it is a 1km trek to the fall.

Alternate names : Walawal Thuna Ella, Besam Ella, Besam Thuna Ella, Biso Ella, Thini Oya Ella
