“history lived out”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

This place is a pretty good side stop. For Hindus across the world however, it is like living through the great legends.
One can even splash about in the falls and the local street stall offers trinkets, souvenirs and even snacks.
The water itself is clean, though the surrounding is litered with plastic wrappers and the like.

On way to this place, you will pass through some spectacular views.

“Stunning.”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

We saw the falls from the bottom and the top.

The bottom view is about 6 km out of town on the road south (towards Tissa) - so, if you're heading that way have your driver stop for a picture. Otherwise, tuk tuks can take you there for a visit.

We also walked along the train tracks to a spot that overlooks the falls. That's a nice way to spend an hour or two.

i thought i have to walk a bit to find this Ravana Falls in the middle of misty forest. it is just on the road side ... the falls itself is nice though ... a bit turn down that we could not feel the freshness of the water

“Spectacular views”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

Incredible view of this waterfall. We visited the day after a torrential rainstorm meaning the water was even faster. Beware of the hawkers asking for English coins for there 'children' and selling gem stones which are not local as you would think.
