Situated just off of the renowned Nuwara Eliya district of Sri Lanka you can discover Devon Falls, named after a figure from Sri Lankan colonial history, and one of the island’s best waterfalls.
The Devon who the falls are named after was one of the early pioneers of coffee plantation in Sri Lanka. After facing difficulties growing coffee, the plantations found much more success with tea. The plantation still exists to this day, and can be explored during a visit.
The waterfalls are just less than 100 metres in height, and are the 19th highest among the various other waterfalls on the island. Due to their popularity as a tourist destination, there are many Nuwara Eliya bungalows to be found nearby, from entities such as Mas Villa.
A Tea-Lover’s Paradise
In addition to the original Devon plantation being situated here, visitors can also explore the legendary Mlesna Tea Castle which is situated very close to the most widely-used Devon Falls viewpoint. There are many other tea-estates in the area as well.
St.Clare’s, another one of Sri Lanka’s most popular waterfalls, is also located quite close to Devon Falls, allowing one to witness two of the island’s iconic waterfalls in one place.
