Bopath Ella Waterfall is located in Agalawatta Village in Kuruvita, in the Ratnapura District of Sri Lanka. The waterfall has the shape of a Bo leaf. The name “Bo-path Ella” has been given to it because of this shape. In Sinhalese, “path” means the leaves of a tree and “Ella” is the Sinhala translation of the term “waterfall”.
The waterfall is 30m high and it is formed from the Kuru Ganga. The Kuru Ganga is joined with the Kalu Ganga at Madara. Bopath Ella is a major tourist attraction in Sri Lanka, as it is located not far from the capital, Colombo. It’s possible to swim in the base pool and should be careful when rainy seasons.
