Asupini Ella

Crew: 8

Transportation: Bus (To Aranayake)

Duration: One day

We took a Kandy – Mawanella bus for the 27 km ride and then went another 13kms by bus to Aranayake. We went one day prior to the hike and stayed at one of the friends’ house. If you are planning to arrive  aranayake at the same day morning, better to find the bus schedule or use a private transportation method.

The bottom end of Asu-Pini ella is in Aranayake and the waterfall begins near dolosbage, which is near Gampola. There is a separate road parallel to the waterfall from aranayake to somewhere near the begining of the asupini ell and also there is an observatory on the way. It is said the waterfall height is around 30 meters. We thought of climbing the falls rather than walking on the road.

We spent the night at Aranayake and started the journey at about 9 in the morning. First few kilometers of the road are flat, but then it limits to a walkable path through bushes and rocks until the bottom of the water fall. The water flow was not that mush higher at the time we went, but there were traces to prove us that water is not always that less and calm. Most of the rocks immersed from the water had caves and pits.

The climb is steep and the risk is high, Sometimes we had to climb 90 degree angles using rope and also with the help of nearby trees and bushes. We had our lunch on the way and reached to the top around 6pm. Then we had a bath in a natural pool on th top of the water fall. As we missed the last bus from there to gampola (which is a 16 km ride) 😛 , had to walk for few kms and then was able to hire a van to Gampola.
