Thudugala Ella waterfall is situated in the Thudugala village of Kalutara district. This western province is located 40 km away from Colombo at complete connectivity with the other coastal beaches. Unlike many waterfalls that are perched on a hilltop at massive heights, Thudugala stands apart. The waters flow on rocks that gradient at intermittent levels. The irregularity causes the waters to gush, making a soft thud. The waters are cold and they make a euphony as they hit the pools of water.
The calm flow of waters is an excellent bathing spot to soak yourself in the natural ponds - perfect for a swim date with friends and family! Thudugala has an altitude that is entirely scalable in comparison to many others. Hence just climbing up atop wet rocks makes for a fun, adventurous activity. Tall trees and the impeccable golden sun glaze the pools.There also exists a tunnel that hides underwater and pours out on an opening along the top. The structure is sophisticated yet elegant. History has it that a Britisher owned the estates around the falls in the days of war and one can still spot his ruined house in the neighbourhood. At 26 metres height, Thudugala falls, though one of the smallest, is listed among the most famous waterfalls in the country by Lanka Council on Water Falls (CLWF).
