The falls: Mediocre. (HOWEVER if you have small kids - it is worth it for the fun beneath the falls: just be careful as it is slippy). If you would not have a dip - don't bother. The walk from Ella is long(ish) but with...More

It's all a bit touristy, but if you go out of season, it's just lovely. I have a fantasy of one day buying that tea shop up the hill and selling home-made Victoria sponges.

The Ravana Ella falls is a quite beauty which can be easily be seen from the main road. This also can be seen from the peak of the Ella rock when there's no mist.

Despite its flow being reduced by an extended drout, the falls still provide a picturesque stop and makes one wonder how majestic they'd be at their peak. The ubiquitous beggars and hawkers (although significantly fewer than a few years ago) take some of the gloss...More

The place worth an hour or two if you want to swim 100 meters high from the ground in natural water pool.

On the road from Tissamaharama to Haputale we made a short stop near the Ravana Waterfalls. An interesting place with a fairly high waterfall. As there were not many tourists present, we were able to climb over the rocks easily and made some good pictures....More
