Bopath Ella Falls

Bopath Ella Falls


Bopath Falls is located in the village of Agalwatta in the Ratnapura District of Sri Lanka. The Kuru River, a tributary of the Black River, cascades down 30 meters (95 feet) high through a narrow opening from the top of a mountain at one point in her journey. The name 'Bopath Ella' is derived from the fact that the stream collapses in the form of a Bo leaf when there is good water. The first body of water, which falls through a narrow opening, then expands, reminiscent of the shape of a palm leaf.Bopath Ella is a beautiful place that attracts the attention of local tourists today.

Height in Bopath Ella Falls: 30 metres

Route:One road from Colombo to Ratnapura-Colombo A4 to Bopath Ella has fallen off at Higgashena Junction and the other near Kuruwita Police Station. This waterfall can be accessed through these two access roads which are equidistant. The village where Bopathella is located is called Agalawatta. Distance from the main road is 03 km.

Although it was not noticed by most people two or three decades ago, today Bopath Falls has become a major tourist attraction. This may be due to its location in a densely populated area and a place of free and beautiful surroundings that can be reached very quickly.

In addition to the beauty of the surface, there is also a scary, dangerous nature associated with this waterfall. More than 80 people have been killed so far due to careless climbing along the slope of the falls and other causes. Reckless behavior in an unfamiliar place and going to work under the influence of alcohol are the main cause of these deaths.

The Kuruwita Pradeshiya Sabha has constructed a car park, a viewing area and a toilet complex near the waterfall. In addition, there are several restrooms with residential facilities run by private companies. The large number of people who visit Bopath Falls, as well as the polythene, bottle shells and various food waste that they dump into the environment, severely damage the aesthetics of the surrounding environment. So bring back everything you carry. We all have a responsibility to protect the country's natural heritage.
