Legend has it that one day a British planter,followed by his faithful dog, visited the falls to capture some photographs. Unfortunately, the excited dog lost its footing and plummeted into the base of the waterfall and drowned. A nobleman named D G Siridoris witnessed this event, and from then on referred to it as ‘Balla Mala Ella’, which means ‘the waterfall in which the dog died.’
