Good to stop on the way to/from Ella

These falls are just next to the main road to Ella (if you go from the south), so you can´t miss it. If you drive around, it is good to stop for a while, I wouldn´t go there just... read more

It's good for a quick photo if it's along the way. If not it isn't much to look at. It's definitely not one of those massive and powerful falls where you will get a sense of awe nor one of those where you can enjoy a nice swim in. It's right beside the road so that makes it less majestic... More

I've seen many waterfalls before, and this was nothing special. It is pretty small and I would say over rated. It's pretty, but like I said before, nothing special.

Access to this waterfall is very easy. 20 minutes drive from Ella. When heading Wellawaya, after 15km you can see this waterfall on your right hand side. There are plenty of safe places to watch the beauty of Rawana falls. The sign boards say "do not climb on rocks" Yes it's dangerous. During the rainy season the mist from the... More

First of all I want to say, plenty of writers who are talking about our ancient king ravanas details not known well and lack of their knowledge. But few of rare knowledgeable expertise has been mentioned true and most accurate witnesses about this power full kingdom. So one of the great professor mirando obesekara in sir lanka is still giving... More

The falls is good and since it is on the side of the road you can visit the falls.This falls is not very special and if it is on the way to your destination then you can spend 15 minutes.

We stopped here on our way from Yala to Ella. The waterfalls itself look amazing, but we couldnt spend much time there due to the very annoying and rude street sellers. Dont talk to them at all!!!! First they put a stone in your hand and tell you it is a gift, then they ask for any foreign currency for... More

Good walk down the rail track to the falls, through some interesting areas and bush. Falls quite small, and a bit difficult to get down to the road from the falls.

On a short bus ride one can visit Ravana Ella Falls. The falls breaks up into smaller falls making it a nice view. There is no swimming in these falls.
