Nice place for an hour or so. You can actually swim in the bassin and som locals use the lower part as a shower. They even do their laundry there. The entry is free of charge and you can take the bus (998) to get there, so it is an cheap excursion.

Now this is good to snap some pictures and swimming is possible and you can take a trail up to a higher point of the falls. The area is full of people trying to sell things but never feel obligated to buy as they will give foreigners the tourist rate. Even a coke in a plastic bottle which cost 100... More

I had a stop over with an English family as they were giving me a lift to a town nearby. The waterfalls are just by the road, so it's definitely worth a stop if you're passing by. Take your shoes off and jump in if you want to, but the place was full of locals and tourists alike due to... More

Really beautiful water fall, you got to step back onto the bridge to see the full size of the waterfall it's amazing... If you want the waterfall for your self, go early note that it's dangerous and some 30+ people have lost there lives, most likely trying to do something stupid when it's too strong... Anyways It becomes quite full... More

We went twice - go early in the day if you want the whole waterfall to yourself for a private swim. Arrive late in the day if you want to people watch and share the falls with locals washing clothes and bathing the whole family!

The ravana falls are nice waterfalls, just along the road. Refresh your feet in them (or all of you). Ignore the omnipresent souvenir sellers.

Beautiful waterfall, with many locals showering and tourists swimming. Nice to spend half an hour or so cooling your feet.

There is a gate at the right side of the waterfall, that says climbing is prohibited, but if you enter and follow the path you will get to a very nice pool up close by the waterfall for an amazing experience and swim
