Nuwara Eliya is a beautiful and popular city located in the Central Province of Sri Lanka. Known for its picturesque landscapes and cool climate, Nuwara Eliya is one of the leading cities in tea plantations and factories. It is also a popular city amongst tourists due to its breathtaking scenic beauty, lively annual festivals, and its historic and cultural attractions.
Located along the Hatton-Thalawakele Main Road, which leads to Nuwara Eliya is the magnificent Devon Falls, one of the Sri Lanka’s most renowned waterfalls. Known for its beautiful scenery, the Devon Falls offers splendid views of cool and clear water cascading from the Kothmale Oya, a tributary stream formed by Sri Lanka’s longest river, the Mahaveli River.
Located 1150m above sea-level, the Devon Falls has a height of 97m, making it the 19th tallest water fall in Sri Lanka. Surrounded by giant bounder formations and lush greenery, this magnificent waterfall was named after a pioneer Coffee Planter of English origin known as Devon. One of the marvellous features of this waterfall is the cascading waters that are divided into two parts along its way to the bottom, with one of the divided sections taking an almost 90o turn to the left before cascading down again. There are three possible ways to catch an amazing view of Devon Falls; the best being the spot along the Thalawakele Main Road which offers an amazing view of Devon Falls as well as St. Clair Falls, another popular waterfall in the region. The railway near Watagoda also offers a splendid view of the falls, while a short walk through the neighbouring tea estates of the falls should offer you a view of this waterfall as well. This waterfall is considered to be one Sri Lanka’s most beautiful waterfalls which give you a glimpse of the natural beauty of the island paradise that is Sri Lanka, so make sure you witness its awe-inspiring beauty.
