- Kegalle --> Asupini Ella Falls Since we went from Kegalle, the route was the Mawanella Dippitiya Aranayake Horawela and walked along the Horawela-Deiyanwela road. Google Map also shows the way we went. If you go by bike you can go to the waterfall on that road. A 4 wheel high vehicle is also possible. Even if you go by bike, there are some difficult places on that road. If the bike is high, the tires are good and the brakes are good, there is no problem. I can't say if I can go by scooter. Anyway, you can go in 3 wheels until you get on that road. Then you have to walk, it took more than half an hour to go from Horawela to the falls by bike.
