Waterfall
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.

  • Beautiful waterfall but so crowded that multiple business settled to feed tourists. Only monkeys who digs trash find their account. 5' to stop charged 50 rupees.

  • It's a picturesque falls, but there are sooo many people. I think you can swim there as well... Don't fall for the "free" limestones that some of the locals give to you, they would ask help for a loved one who is sick or need money for school. There's ice cream and other snacks on the road. Tip for drone flyers: not much signal here, our drone tried to fly away by itself, good thing we managed to land it back!!
  • Generally a great location to sit, relax and enjoy. It's well known with many people around, which can be good as you know it's safe to get into the water, but it can also feel a bit overcrowded. They charge 50 lkr for parking. Well worth a stop if traveling on the way or staying close to this location, but nothing too special.
  • Beautiful place has a big history. Wonderful story are and secret kept within the water fall.
  • Fantastic waterfall. Lovely views. Place locals wash & have a swim. We got tuk tuk down from Ella. Little stalls near by selling food & gifts. 👍👍Recommend having a look.
  • One of the best waterfalls I ever visit. You can climb up to the main spot, but be careful the rocks are sometimes slippery. On top you have an amazing view!
