#3 of 6 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.

  • A very good place to enjoy the breath and beauty of Island. Tourist are visiting all the way from different part of world to enjoy the natural falls where they can bath as well. Further the Ravana Falls is a popular sightseeing attraction in Sri Lanka. It currently ranks as one of the widest falls in the country.
  • Beautiful view when you drive down from wellavaya. Climate is usually cool.. good place for a photo stop...but always crowded
  • The Ravana Falls (popularly known as Ravana Ella-රාවණා ඇල්ල in Sinhala) is a popular sightseeing attraction in Sri Lanka. It currently ranks as one of the widest falls in the country. This waterfall measures approximately 25 m (82 ft) in height and cascades from an oval-shaped concave rock outcrop. During the local wet season, the waterfall turns into what is said to resemble an areca flower with withering petals. But this is not the case in the dry season, where the flow of water reduces dramatically. The falls form part of the Ravana Ella Wildlife Sanctuary, and is located 6 km (3.7 mi) away from the local railway station at Ella. (wiki) Excellent spot to visit..
  • Really fun place.. lots of locals swimming and they are all super friendly. Very slippery so be carfeul!
  • Nice atmosphere. Beautiful fall. But usually crowed. Need to improve public services
