Description

This 100 meter high Eli Hatha  waterfall is in fact collection of 7 waterfalls on the Naya River on the Sri Pada Nature Reservation. Each fall is identified by a number starting at the bottom. Even though not very popular among the average traveler, this is popular location for ardent hikers. In 2012 it was reported that a mini hydro power plant is being built on this Nature Reserve violating many environmental regulations by an doctor with close government connections. A dam is being built at the waterfall number 3 and the water will be diverted to the turbine at the waterfall number 1. If this project is allowed to go ahead, the waterfalls numbered 4, 5, 6 and 7 will get completely dried up.
