This beautiful waterfall is also known as Dunumala Falls, Algama Falls, Alawala Falls, and Devin Penna Falls. This waterfall is mentioned in some books as one of the waterfalls in the Gampaha district and as a waterfall in the Kegalle district.
Dunumala Ella falls from a rock about 40-45 feet high and is fed by the bow chain stream. Dunumala Falls flows from the top into three sections, first falling from a cliff about 10 feet high and then another part of the waterfalls down another cliff about 5-6 feet high. It then descends another 3 feet high rock. At the foot of the waterfall is a small basin-shaped natural pool. We often see waterfalls in Sri Lanka from the front. However, we can see Dunumala Falls in front of us as well as from the top to the bottom and from the side of the waterfall.

There are only 02 waterfalls in the entire Gampaha district. The highest waterfall is Dunumala Falls. The main access road to Dunumala Falls is from Hanwella Road, Nittabuwa. After passing Alawala through Attanagalla, turn left at Dunumala Junction and after another 2 km you can see the views of this waterfall.

- The view from the top to the bottom of the falls is beautiful but you should never bend over and walk on the rocks. During the rainy season, Dunumala Falls becomes spectacular and the risk increases. During the rainy season, bathing in the lower part of the falls should also be done carefully while walking on the slimy rocky plateau.
- It's cool to eat during the day, but it's a bit of a hassle for people screaming and screaming.
- Some of the visitors have left empty glass bottles, empty tins and polythene in place and have polluted this lovely place. If you are also visiting Dunumala Falls, please contribute to the protection of Dunumala Falls and its surroundings. Do not litter.
