“Definitely stop by..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

It worth stopping to look at this waterfall. Its about 7-8 km away from Ella town and it is also very easy to find. Just like another waterfall it has a calming effect. Water is very cold and really pure. It is not just the waterfall landscaping surrounding it also is breathtaking. It is worth spending about hour or so to enjoy the view.

“Lovely waterfall; great place to meet some locals”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Although this is just a waterfall, it is pretty big and you can clamber on the rocks to dip in the rock pools. its also a great place to meet some locals and understand sri lankan family life; they are very communal and sociable people. we met two families and two monks on a day trip as well as some locals feeding corn to monkeys. an enjoyable two hours.

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

To reach Rawana Water falls from Ella you can face a quite nice landscape, either by tuktuk or walking, along Ella Gap. The water falls from an high area, which gives this place a spectacular view.

“Beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Perfect for a refreshing dip in the muggy hill country climate! Beautiful falls but full of tourists and the inevitable touts that come with it.

“Good to see already on the way to Ella”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

Very nice place, dont miss it. If you arrive to Ella on the road from the bottom, you will see it.
many monkeys around...
Dont take /or buy any useless stones/coins from the harassing people and maybe in a future they will stop bothering tourists any more
