Thaliya Watuna Falls is situated in Madulkelle in the central province. It is 50 meters high and is also called Alakola Falls because the waterfall lies in the Alakola Estate. This name has an interesting story behind it. It is said that this area was under a planter named Allen Collen during the British regime. With time this Allen Collen Watte has become Alakola Watte (Alakola Estate).
