Bottom of 'Bo-path Ella' waterfall, Kuruwita, Sri Lanka.

Eight miles short of Rathnapura, on the Avissawella-Rathnapura trunk road is the town of Kuruwita. About one and a half Kilometers from Kuruwita lies the 'Bo-path Ella' waterfall. Its shape is like that of the leaf of the sacred Bo tree (Ficus religiosa). Hence the name. Thereare a lot of villas where you could find food and accomodation around this spot. It is a lovely place for bathing. Climbing the slipperry rocks is dangerous. Quite a lot of lives have been lost this way. It is also a notorious place for suicides.
