Hiking & trekking to Kota Ganga waterfall

The Kota Ganga Ella Falls is a cluster of cascading waterfalls on Knuckles Mountain Range in the Kandy District. The cluster consists of at-least 7 major segments totaling probably over 100 meters in height. The cluster of waterfalls lies deep inside the Knuckles Forest with no established trail and other trails known by the villagers. Also there is no full view point for this waterfall. Trekkers can reach this waterfall from Thangappuwa village. The hike is approximately 5.5km walk. It’s highly recommended to go with a guide who knows the directions well to the fall.
