Mohini Ella Falls (Maskeliya)

Mohini Ella Falls
Mohini Ella Falls, also known as Movini Ella (Sinhala: මෝහිනී ඇල්ල), is a waterfall situated on the wayside of Maskeliya-Sripada road near Maskeliya Reservoir (or Maussakelle) in Nuwara Eliya District, Sri Lanka. 

The fall is 20 m (65.61 ft.) high and its sources rise from the Laxapana Estate on the south slope of Mountain Takinarupa (Kautzsch, 1983). The fall plunges into the Maskeliya Reservoir.

Although it has a nice view from the road, the water of the falls is not suitable for drinking or bathing as it flows through some residential areas. Locals believe that the dark spirit called "Mohini" haunts this location.
