#3 of 7 in Parks in Ella
Waterfall Nature / Park
See an impressive natural feature at Ravana Ella Falls, measuring 25 m (82 ft) in height. Plummeting down an uneven rocky outcrop, the cataract resembles the withering petals of an areca flower and represents the setting of several local myths and legends. With several plunge pools and multiple cascades, the area offers a popular walking route, where each of the natural tiers gives extensive views of the surrounding nature reserve, and the individual pools invite you to cool off.

  • Nice waterfall on the side of the road- lots of tourists - worth a visit but not insane. Lots of monkeys around. If you can go round to the left of the big boulder - there's a nice rock pool to dip yo...  more »
  • Take your swim trunks and take a dip at the base of the waterfall. Be careful of the slippery rocks. The water in the pool is refreshing. Better to do this after walking up the stairs at Ravana Cave. ...  more »

  • Very picturesque waterfall near Ella, Sri Lanka. Consists of many tiers. A well known waterfall. So there is always tourist activity. There are places where you can have a dip along the falls, but you should take care of your self.
  • One of the best & widest water fall in Sri Lanka. Easily approachable from road. Safe to swim here. A bit crowded but that's make the place safe. Simply awesome. Happy travelling!!
  • Well worth a visit! We walked down there from Ella, which honestly was not the nicest walk ever (lots of traffic and honking cars). When we got there, the little swimming area behind the rocks was completely empty, and we enjoyed it alone for quite a while. So refreshing after the sweaty 6km walk! It did fill up in the afternoon though, so I would recommend coming early.
  • Great Place to visit.... So beautiful environment and lovely place.
  • Beautiful waterfall. Bathing possible. Avoid climbing rocks as they are extremely slippery and can lead to serious injuries or death.
