Ramboda Falls in Sri Lanka: The Most Beautiful Waterfalls of Sri Lanka
Rivers, as they flow over uneven ground or down mountains, often split into tributaries or form waterfalls. Sometimes two tributaries of the same river may form twin waterfalls very close to each other as the water spills down cliffs and rocks. However, it is quite uncommon for the tributaries to combine after forming the waterfalls making a Y shape.
This unique and beautiful sight can be seen at the Pussellawa area of Nuwara Eliya, at the Ramboda Pass. The Ramboda Falls in Sri Lanka or Ramboda Ella or Puna Ella as these falls are called is created from Puna Oya, a tributary of Kothmale Oya. It makes a twin with Dunsinane Falls which is created by Pundalu Oya, also a tributary of Kothmale River, and combines at the base to form a Y shape.
Ramboda Falls in Sri Lanka: Insights
Details about Ramboda Falls in Sri Lanka
Height : 109 m
Ranking in Sri Lanka : 11th Tallest
Ranking in World : 729th Tallest
Location : A5 Highway, Ramboda Pass, Pussellawa area, Nuwara Eliya
Height from Sea Level : 945m
Water Volume : During normal periods of the year Dunsinane Falls which falls on the right receives more volume of water than Ramboda falls. However during periods of drought the role is reversed as Dunsinane Falls, whose tributary passes through farming lands before falling, has less water coming through compared to Ramboda Falls whose tributary passes through a forest reserve. In this case, instead of Ramboda Falls having more water it is more due to Dunsinane receiving less water while Ramboda remains the same.
