Obada Ella Falls (Bandarawela)

Obada Ella Falls

Obada Ella Falls (Sinhala: ඕබඩ ඇල්ල) is a waterfall located near Bandarawela town in the scenic Badulla District of Sri Lanka. This modest waterfall is located just a few meters away from the main road, making it easily accessible for those passing through the area.

One distinctive feature of Obada Ella Falls is that it flows primarily during specific seasons of the year, especially during the rainy season when water levels are higher. This seasonality adds a dynamic element to the waterfall, offering a different experience for visitors depending on the time of their visit.

Despite its accessibility and natural charm, it's important to note that Obada Ella Falls is relatively small, and the water is reported to be polluted, making it unsuitable for bathing. Additionally, the water level tends to be low during most periods, and the site may present challenges for parking vehicles.

For those exploring the Badulla District or passing through Bandarawela, Obada Ella Falls provides a brief stop to appreciate the natural beauty of the region. The seasonal flow and accessibility make it a kind of attraction for travellers.
