Kabaragoi Ella


This waterfall and its surrounding is one of the most enchanting places I have ever visited. The waterfall is simply gorgeous and when its dazzling water blends with the mysterious splendour of surrounding, this place becomes a truly magical place.

Kabaragoi Ella is situated about half a kilometer from Akasa Bokkuwa. Kabaragoya is the local name for water monitor, but I do not know how the falls got its name.

You can see more exciting images of this place here!

Rainfield,
Yep it is very slippery over there and I almost had a close shave on top of the rock shown just infront of the falls! You have to be very careful when walking on top of these rocks.

Chavie,
The water stream also known by the same name, may be it is popular for kabaragoyas. But i didn see any, so cannot confirm :)

Betsy,
You will definitly love visiting here for sure :)
wow..you got snow over there..its going to be a real white christmas this time in Tennessee! Would love to see your post tomorrow!!

Waterfalls are great things. I don't have any close to where I live, so I have only seen them in pictures or video. The one in your picture looks like the best kind.

Ratty,
We in Sri Lanka quite lucky to have so many waterfalls closeby..
Yes the above one is an exceptionally good waterfall out of all the ones i have visited.
I shall post a few more waterfalls I visited recently in my next posts.
Thanks for your comments!

The sound of a waterfall is so calming, at least for me. Nice photo!

Linnea W said...

As soon as I laid eyes on your photo, I shouted "wow"! It is gorgeous. I can almost hear the sound of the flowing water. It kind of warms me up since it's so cold outside right now. Thanks for sharing and thanks for visit to my blog...
