About Bopath Ella
“Bopath Ella”, not like many of the others of her kind, finds her abode in a busy surrounding in the village called Devipahala off Kuruwita on A4 High-Level road close to Ratnapura. Being within 3 hours driving distance from the capital, it thus claims the honor of having the highest turn-over of enthusiasts seeking respite from the grimy and monotonous town life. Nevertheless, it has the notorious reputation of devouring its visitors off and on who, attracted by the surroundings, indulge in over-enjoyment. Here again, the falls take the shape of a “Bo” leave ( “Bo” tree is a sacred tree here ) from which the name has been derived.
