Little bit about Sera Ella Falls
Sera Ella Falls is a hidden gem in the Dumbara Valley. You can take the route from Matale - Riverston - Pitawala Pathana - Ilukkumbura - Pothatawela to reach there. Though the road is not in its perfect conditions, cars can still go. Its about 9KMs from Pitawala Pathana.
Located in a picture perfect surrounding, it falls as two sections in a height of 10 metres on a wide stretch of rock face. The waterfall has a great amusement inside for you; there's a cave just behind the white veil of falling water. You can climb up the rock steps and go inside the cave that will allow you to stay just behind the curtain of water falling endlessly.
Best time of the day to visit the falls is morning or evening. During the rainy season its grandest mass of water can be observed.
There are boutique shops near the waterfall selling delicious local food and beverages. You will find the locals extremely friendly and helpful reminding non can beat the warm hospitality of Sri Lankans.
