    Amazement place
    Very attractive and marvellous place.slippery, be careful on walking. Sometime very dangerous where you face danger experience. You can bath near waterfall. But don't try to reach the base of waterfall ,it is very careless stupid work because that point is very deeper than you think. Some days upper area of waterfall receive high amount of rain and suddenly increase the level of water in bathing area. Therefore you be careful and have a panaromic view

    By the roadside
    It is a popular sightseeing attraction in Sri Lanka and currently ranks as one of the widest waterfalls in the country. It is best visited during the local wet  season. It is best viewed from the road side.

    Rawana Ella Falls is incredibly accessible, just a short walk from the parking area, making it perfect for travelers of all ages and abilities. You can easily reach it in normal shoes and attire, without the need for any special equipment. It's a great spot to simply stop and admire the beauty of the falls, making it an ideal addition to any itinerary in the Ella area

A well visited waterfall on the main road from Ella to yala. The place is close to the main city and can be easily accessed via bicycles or vehicles. The view is really stunning and you feel like spending some time here. A couple of small eateries help you refresh. A good visit in Ella.

One of the most popular attractions in Ella. It is known to be one of the widest waterfalls in the island with a height of around 82 ft. Due to its popularity, its heavily crowded during most of the time and the area surrounding the fall is highly commercialized. Nevertheless, it's a must visit destination.

It's a very nice waterfall. We went when it had been pretty dry - I imagine it would be more spectacular when it's been raining. There are some local pop-up stores nearby, and it's just off a fairly busy road. But you get a fair amount of people here, all scrabbling around for the same photos. So check it out if you're passing, otherwise skip.

May be it is my twelfth visit! Several stepped Ravana falls has always been the main attraction to visitors to Ella. Columns of clear water with bubbles and froth mixed in it like a thick lace curtain makes it a picture to stare at. It was interesting to see the surrounding rock faces through a telephoto lens or binoculars where I could spot rock shelters or semi caves in the upper region of the hill. I wonder whether ancient humans lived in them during the stone ages.

Great waterfall along the way to Ella from our Uda Walave safari park visit -- worth for a short stop by for some magnificent photos. Many people were seen playing/ enjoying the water splash at some points in the waterfall (perhaps spash of blessing?). Many street vendors nearby were selling mango sticks (with chilli powder) and steamed corns on the cob.

This was a quick stop over when we were on our way in the morning from Ella for afternoon safari tour at Yala National Park. A quick stop for 10-15 mins for photo takings from the viewing platform near the bridge. Many tourists stop by here too, hence it can be crowded at times. There are restaurants nearby with toilet available. Nice for a short stopover, but nothing “wow” us.
