Sri Lanka has one of the greatest cascade densities on the planet contrasted with Sri Lanka. The lovely Athamala Falls in the Matara District starts from the Nilwala River and is known as the main cascade in the Nilwala River. This is otherwise called Pahuruthota Falls. At a tallness of around 52 meters, this lovely cascade is a wonder of nature with the waters of the Nilwala River. This delightful cascade is anything but a decent spot to wash.
The closest town to the cascade is Pitabeddara. You can utilize the Pitabeddara Siyambalagoda Road or the Nil Ella Estate Road to arrive at this cascade. The two streets join at Athumala Junction and after 3 km you will run over Ethamala Falls. Rumors have spread far and wide suggesting that previously, there was an elephant pass here and elephants used to meander here and one day an elephant tumbled down the cascade and kicked the bucket. This cascade tumbles down into two sections and the water from the upper part tumbles down and the water streams unreservedly downwards making a subsequent cascade. In the subsequent part, the water tumbles down and frames an enormous pool. This is utilized by vacationers and townspeople as a characteristic pool and numerous endemic fish can be seen around the falls.
