Ravana Falls is one of the most beautiful of the many waterfalls in Sri Lanka that is a must-visit site. It is only 10 minutes’ drive from the main street of Ella.
Ravana Falls is about 35 minutes’ drive from a hotel in Bandarawela, so you can wake up early and make it to the waterfall in the morning to make the most of it before the crowds arrive.
Ravana Falls has three tiers with a few rock pools that were created from the cascade of water falling.
Scaling the first tier is generally considered safe but you cannot see the entire waterfall in entirety. It is not advised to scale the rock face to the second and third tiers especially if it is during the rainy season as you could risk slipping.
The Sheer Beauty
You must see the whole waterfall to appreciate the sheer raw beauty of it, so it would be an advantage to hire someone who knows the area and can guide you. If you stay at Bandarawela Hotel, you can ask them to arrange this for you, so you can explore the beautiful falls with a guarantee of your safety.
Safely on Top of the World
Once you get to the top of the waterfall you can see for literal miles, the beautiful hill country of Sri Lanka and really breathe in wonder and fascination at the true beauty of nature.
