Our Trips to Thaliya Watuna Ella

We have visited the location once in the 2019. It was a sudden visit and we didn’t have a plan to go there first. We decided to go there after we came to the Huluganga Ella Waterfall.

The road condition was very poor from Hulu Ganga Town. We have faced few troubles with our Three Wheel. But the road is good for car, van or any other four wheel vehicle.
