Kalupahana Uduwara Ella Falls – උඩුවර ඇල්ල
|Height :||60-80 meters (?)|
Hidden deep inside the mountains near the Sri Lanka’s tallest waterfall Bambarakanda, are two lesser known but magnificent waterfalls which can be enjoyed from a single view point. These are Udawara Ella Fall and the Nagadowa Ella Fall. Since these falls can only be reached by foot after trekking approx 2 kms on from the Kalupahana – Ohiya road. To reach reach to bottom of the fall is a further torturous 5 km trek. The Uduwara Ella Fall is probably about 60-80 meters in height.
The Uduwara Ella Fall is reached by foot from the road leading to the Bambarakanda Falls. Go pass the Bambarakanda falls on the Kalupahana – Ohiya road and taking the tracking path marked on the Google Earth Travel Companion File available for download here
