Devon Falls, Nuwara Eliya

4.3
#5 of 9 in Nature in Nuwara Eliya
Walk through the plantation to get close to the 97 m (318 ft) high Devon Falls. The cascade was named after the famous British coffee planter, whose plantation sits nearby. Head to the viewpoint located in front of the Melsna Tea Castle, and take a break for a nice cup of tea while you admire views of the falls, which can also be seen from the main road. Enjoy the intact natural scenery, then get close to the waterfall for some incredible photos. A visit to Devon Falls represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Nuwara Eliya trip maker to plot your vacation.

  • You can't go to the base of the waterfall without adventure. So, don't go there using Google map navigation. Can see it from main road near Tea Castle. Make destination to "Tea Castle" or near.
