Huluganga Ella Falls (75m in height) is one of many waterfalls created by the stream originating from the Knuckles mountain range. The cascading water sprinkles the villages of Elliyadda and Aratthana, before flowing to the Victoria Reservoir. It is popular with both local and foreign visitors and villagers regard it as part of their Dumbara heritage.
There are lots of rocks on the river and even on the rainy days the water does not get muddy because of rocks, grass and plants. A dam had been built across the top of the fall under the Kundasale Water Supply Scheme. This waterfall became a well-known sight some years ago as this fall was a primary location for one of the most popular Sri Lankan tele dramas “Ella Langa Walauwa” ( Mansion by the Fall).There are number of waterfalls in this area which can be visited in a single trip.
