Surathali Ella Falls

Surathali Ella Fall
Surathali Ella Falls (Sinhala: සුරතලී ඇල්ල) is a long water slip along a rock wall in the middle of a forest located in Ratnapura District, Sri Lanka. It is situated on the roadside of the Balangoda-Beragala road (A4 road) approximately 9.5 km distance from Belihuloya town.

The water slip declines to about a 20 m (65.61 ft.) altitude and the rock wall is part of Ellamana Mountain and the boundary of the Peak Wilderness Sanctuary (Kautzsch, 1983). The sources of the stream are on the eastern slope of Ellamana Mountain and the waters join the Weli Oya (Kautzsch, 1983).

It is named “Surathali Ella” after the film of the same name was shot in that area. In the Sinhala language, Surathali means fondling (Kautzsch, 1983).
