Distance from Kandy – 29.0 km (48 minutes)
Meeyan Ella Waterfall is situated along the Rambukkana – Mawanella Road in Kegalle. It is located along the railway track which goes to Kandy, close to the Ihalakotte railway station. The waterfall is sourced from a stream which originates from the Alagalla Mountain. This once large single stream waterfall now flows in two streams. This was because the British cut two deep grooves into the rock of this waterfall in order to build a railway track from Colombo to Kandy for the transportation of valuable goods for export.
