Warnagala Ella Falls (Sri Pada)

Warnagala Ella Falls
Warnagala Ella Falls (Sinhala: වර්ණගල ඇල්ල) is a waterfall in Ratnapura District, Sri Lanka. It is located in the woods near the Warnagala Ambalama which is located on the footpath running from Erathna to sacred Sri Pada Mountain.

Created by the Kuru Ganga River, the fall is thought to be more than 30 m in height. In the Sinhala language, Warnagala means "coloured rock" and the name may have come into usage due to the different colours that can be seen around the waterfall.  The site is not suitable for bathing or swimming and not safe during the rainy climate.
