Peessa Ella Waterfall is one of Sri Lanka’s most beautiful natural attractions. It stands at 45 meters in height. Peessa Ella is a small village in the Badulla district of the province of Uva, Sri Lanka. It is located in the Peessa Agro-colony. Passara is the nearest town to the Peessa Ella and has a population of about 20,000 people. Aquifer at the summit of the Lunugala Mountain feeds this waterfall, which is relatively unknown outside of its immediate vicinity. This is in addition to the rain-induced mudslide. Water from the Peessa Ella’s excess capacity is delivered to the river in two streams when it rains. People can be reached through the A5 route (Peradeniya-Badulla-Henkalad), which is located close to Lunugala and runs through the town. There is a legend around the Peessa Ella’s given name. This waterfall is known as ‘Peessa’ in old Sinhala, which literally translates as “place of assembly.” It is stated that it was here that King Dutugamunu gathered workers for the construction of vihare, dagabas, and other temple structures.
It is located in the town of Peesagama in the province of Passara. Power is generated by the Peessa Waterfall, which is used to power two power stations. It is necessary to exercise extreme caution when walking towards the Peessa Ella at certain places. However, it is not a particularly difficult task.
