Ravana Ella Falls, Ella

3.6
#3 of 7 in Parks in Ella
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.

    Although it's a nice waterfall to see, and possibly swim in if you got the chance, it's overcrowded. If the 20 other tourists trying to squeeze onto the viewing rock don't make you run for the hills, ...  more »

    Except the fact that it either "a priori" the largest fall in the country, she really has nothing extraordinary, you can see dozens like that in france.

    This waterfall is not as spectacular. At least not when we visited him. We came there by on the way to the next destination and it's nice to get to stop and take a picture. It was also nice to see that locals there a bad names. It seems to be very busy later in the day at the waterfall so it best you come early in the morning.

    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.

    Beautiful waterfall. Bathing possible. Avoid climbing rocks as they are extremely slippery and can lead to serious injuries or death.
