Kurundu Oya Ella Falls

Kurundu Oya Ella Falls (Sinhala: කුරුඳු ඔය ඇල්ල) is a waterfall located in Walapane in Nuwara Eliya District, Sri Lanka. The fall is about 208 m (682 Ft.) in height and is formed by the waters of the Kurundu Oya stream originating from Sri Lanka's highest mountain range, Pidurutalagala (Abeyawardana, 2004).

The fall is considered to be the second highest waterfall in the country (Abeyawardana, 2004). At present, a small hydropower plant operates at the base of the waterfall.
