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.

  • We were here on the passage and stopped short. You can walk a few meters further back closer next to the bridge at the falls. It has a small natural water basin, which works very well for a dip... it has very many tourists who have the same idea...

  • Not much to say, really. It's a waterfall with a natural pool just next to the main road. Which is how we found it by coincidence as we were exploring on our rented scooter. Unless you feel like jumpi...  more »
  • If you are nearby the waterfalls, so stop for a swim in the water, or just wet your feet. It's so nice and cooling. You can bring children for this. Maybe you'll see the monkeys. We did..  more »

  • We enjoyed our easy walk down to the falls from Ella. The road is quite busy but there is a lot to see. The falls are great fun. We went on a very busy Saturday. There were local people bathing and hair washing, tourists climbing on rocks and a general atmosphere of festivity. The falls are striking and quite impressive but the people are more interesting. It is easy to get a bus up the hill to Ella.
  • Must stop. Super duper. The water is refreshing. Around the bend. Quite risky to reach the fall but worth the trouble. Be conscious of not stepping on to unwanted places. Would be pleased to help anyone wanting assistance to go there... Travel buddy. Let me know
  • This is a great location in Sri Lanka to stop and take in some breathtaking scenery. It’s can get very busy with tourists and speeding buses so caution is advised. The views are spectacular and the waterfall itself is very impressive. There are lots of stalls to but food as well.
  • A fabulous waterfall near to the Ella-Wellawaya main road although most people are bathing there, it is a dangerous place for bathing. Therefore, I would kindly recall the refusal to take baths at that place
  • Falls are beautiful, but crowded by tourists. Parking next to the road, by the side, and we were asked to pay for it?!?! Nice to stop if it is in your way, not worth going only to see them.
