Dunhinda Ella, pronounced "Dunghinde Elle", is the landmark waterfall of Badulla, the capital of Uva Province. Situated just about 3.5 km outside town not far from Mahiyangana Road (B36), it can be reached by hiking along a 1 km long jungle path through a picturesque valley covered with jungle. Dinhinda Ella measures 64 m in height and is formed by the Badulu Oya, the main river of the region. The name „Dunhinda“ refers from the smoky spray. In the colonial period, Dunhinda Ella was also called „Bridal Fall“, as the shape of the waterfall resembles a veil.
