Bopath Ella Falls

Bopath Ella Falls, Sri Lanka
Bopath Ella Falls is a water fall in Ratnapura District, Sri Lanka. The fall is about 35 meters tall and formed by the river Kuru Ganga, a tributary of Kalu Ganga (Abeyawardana, 2002). Located near to the Kuruwita town, the fall can be reached by going along the Higgashinna-Devipahala road about 4 km distance.

The fall cascades resembling a shape of a Bo-leaf (Abeyawardana, 2002). Therefore it is named as Bopath Ella. In Sinhalese language, the word Bo means the tree of sacred fig (Bodhi-tree) while Path means the leaves.
