Udagama Duvili Ella Falls
Udagama Duvili Ella Falls – by Dr Ashan Geeganage
Height :30 metres
District :Ratnapura
Alternative spellings : Udagama Duvili Ella, Udagama Doowili Ella, Udagama Doovili Ella

The 30m Udagama Duwili Ella fall is famous for its misty spray. Because of this enchanting beauty, its name is ascribed. The arrant drop of the fall onto a rock creates a misty spray, which engulfs the surroundings. A hydropower project harnessing the fall’s water supply generates 5kw of electricity for 125 agricultural families. Fields are irrigated by the brook feeding the waterfall. In addition to this, a drinking water network is also there to supply the village with the downed water of the fall.

There are two routes to this perennial waterfall. One runs from Ratnapura -Embilipitiya Road. To follow this route turn at Pallebedda and travel for 2km along Kumburugamuwa Road, go from Udagama Junction to Udagama. A woodlot is met there. A traveller has to trek through the wilderness for about a km to reach the fall.

There is another waterfall (Udagama Handapan Ella)  about 200m away which is in nexus with another waterway. The traveller, to this place, is privileged to visit two waterfalls in a single visit. The catchments of both Ella Uda Conservation & the upper reach of the fall are located in the wetlands, resulting in an abundance of rainfall.

The marker above points to the Kumburugamuwa area only. Not the waterfall location. Please see the directions above.
