    It has always been beautiful
    May be it is my twelfth visit! Several stepped Ravana falls has always been the main attraction to visitors to Ella. Columns of clear water with bubbles and froth mixed in it like a thick lace curtain makes it a picture to stare at. It was interesting to see the surrounding rock faces through a telephoto lens or binoculars where I could spot rock shelters or semi caves in the upper region of the hill. I wonder whether ancient humans lived in them during the stone ages.

    Amazement place
    Very attractive and marvellous place.slippery, be careful on walking. Sometime very dangerous where you face danger experience. You can bath near waterfall. But don't try to reach the base of waterfall ,it is very careless stupid work because that point is very deeper than you think. Some days upper area of waterfall receive high amount of rain and suddenly increase the level of water in bathing area. Therefore you be careful and have a panaromic view

    By the roadside
    It is a popular sightseeing attraction in Sri Lanka and currently ranks as one of the widest waterfalls in the country. It is best visited during the local wet  season. It is best viewed from the road side.

A stunning and beautiful waterfall in the Uva province. This is really a beauty. There is a viewing deck so you can watch the waterfall from this deck.

Slightly overrated but it was nice with few layers falling from the mountains. There are many monkeys. We had corn and mango there. Nice experience but there were too many people

The best waterfall we have seen in Sri Lanka- although of course there will be many we have not seen! Super impressive and very easy to get to (not always the case with waterfalls) and very safe underfoot - unless you cross the partially sun stones to get under the falls. As always there is the myriad of beggars, fridge magnets vendors and coconut refreshments available

Beautiful roadside waterfalls.
Local law enforcement were blowing whistles and stopping people from swimming in the water.
