Hunas Ella Falls | Artificial Waterfall in Elkaduwa

Hunas Ella Falls
Hunas Ella Falls, also known as Hunnasgiriya Falls (Sinhala: හුනස් ඇල්ල), is a waterfall situated near Elkaduwa village in Matale District, Sri Lanka. This is an artificial waterfall from a tank below the Hunas Tourist Hotel (Kautzsch, 1983). Waters flow over a 60 m (196.85 ft.) steep rock ledge, coming from the tank which is fed by a brook from the northern slope of Hunnasgiriya Mountain flowing as Maha Oya at Matale to Sudu Ganga, a tributary of Amban Ganga which joins the Mahaweli Ganga River (Kautzsch, 1983).
