Devon Falls, Nuwara Eliya

4.3
#5 of 13 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.

  • These falls offer a glance in the midst of lush greenery. The collection is an example of a typical landscape of the hilly area of Sri Lanka

  • Unless you have a foot tour through this area, you see the falls probably from an observation deck along the main road Nuwara Eliya-Kandy. And that distance is actually much too big to see anything. Sure because there often in the intervening Valley mist prevails.

  • The falls are beautiful, but you can only see a small section from close. Better to pick a place along the main road to view the falls
  • At this end location you can only see a part of the waterfall. Road at the said position is narrow. Try to park at Devon Rest restaurant car park to get a better look at the waterfall else try at different places, on the way from Nuwera Eliya road. Preferred view points : Devon Falls view point 2 or Devon's Holiday Bungalow car park.
  • Beautiful place again. Can see clearly from the main road to Nuwara Eliya-Hatton-Colombo Highway. Separate view point is also there. I think it is possible to near the fall, but will be a very difficult hike. Sometimes the waterfall will be closed due to the hydro power station.
  • One of the beautiful place in Sri Lanka.
  • It's just Devon falls, no Shri Ramji here. If somebody is looking for Shri Ramji better check in India, not in Sri Lanka.
