Asupini Ella Falls

Asupini Ella Falls
Asupini Ella Falls (also called as Ahupini Ella) is a waterfall cascading in Kandy District, Sri Lanka. The fall can be reached by traveling through the Horewala-Deiyanwela road about 1.5 km distance from the Uduwella Bus Station.

The waterfall originates from Maha Oya, a stream flows through Mawanella, Rambukkana and entering the sea at Negombo area (Abeyawardana, 2002). The fall is visible through the jungle and the access is little difficult.

The name Asupini Ella is said to be evolved from "Asupitin Penna Ella" - the fall crossed over on horseback (Abeyawardana, 2002). According to folklore, a prince who escaped captivity from enemies had crossed over the stream at this spot.
