The fall is located in the village of Pothatawela and 11km away from ‘Naturee Riverstone River Cottage’. It is one of a widest waterfall in Knuckles range. It’s about 35m width. Sera Ella has an additional feature of a cave which is situated behind the waterfall. A Bird species called “Seru” are here to give the name ‘Sera Ella’, also some people say that the name of the fall derives from the ‘Sera’ species of fish that inhabits the water.

This beautiful Sera waterfall fall, the subject of several poems, is situated in the Dumbara Jungle that is split into two sections, both 10m in height. Kitul Canal, from the Kaudagammana Mountain, and the Hunumadala River, from the Gonamada and Deyuthu Gammmaduwa mountains, flow in unison to form the Puwakpitiya River. This later joins Thelgamuwa River, at which point the fall is created as the water tumbles down a protruding rock face, visible from Dumbara Jungle. The fall flows all year around and is at its fullest during the monsoon season, between November and April.

Sera Ella is the queen out of these beauties. Furthermore there is a nice foot pathway to the waterfall. It branches to the base of the waterfall and to the cave of the waterfall.
