Ravana Ella

Ravana Ella can be spotted on Ella -Wellawaya main road. Kirinidi Oya is the water course for this beautiful cascading waterfall.

Many of the Sri Lankan waterfall can be spotted in middle of the jungle, with some lengthy routes. But since this falls is located just next to the main road, everybody can reach this without any trouble. So this becomes very popular sightseeing spot for photography.

Ravana ella is related to the famous Indian epic Ramayana. According to the story king Ravana captured the prince Seetha and kept her hidden in a cave which is located behind the Ravana falls.

During the dry season water level reduces drastically and Ravana falls becomes very skinny, but again becomes majestic during the up stream rainy seasons.

Locals who are traveling to upcountry used to stop by the ella and get shower at here. If you have enough energy, you can climb the ella rock. There are many small hotels close by so you can stay,relax and refresh and continue your journey.
