This magnificent waterfall, which is a creation of the Walawe River cascades, down a rock during the rainy season and is known as Punchi Dhuwili Elle. The water, which flows down from about 30 m below, is called Maha Dhuwili Elle. The flow of water forms a wonderful creation.

Dhuwili Elle breaks up into two and coming down forms a pool of water below, the depth or size of which none have found out 50 far. From there the Walawe River flows up to the kaltota dam.
