Good for a quick stop

We enjoyed a quick stop here. It's an impressive waterfall with a small swimming area, buts it's directly off the highway which makes it a little less than perfect. We saw a... read more

A nice photogenic and impressive waterfall at the edge of the road, where the locals are also swimming.

We enjoyed a quick stop here. It's an impressive waterfall with a small swimming area, buts it's directly off the highway which makes it a little less than perfect. We saw a snake charmer and many quartz salesmen.

Amazing stop on the mountain road up to Ella. Fantastic views over valleys and waterfall from above. Monkeys abound, and roadside traders.

This is a very beautiful place, but you don't need very long to see it and take a few pictures. Our guide took very good care of us and especially the kids, and asked us not to go away from the bridge, since it can be very slippery and lately somebody had a deadly accident. So worth to see, but... More

As we were driving out of Ella on route to Yala our driver guide stopped to show us the falls. We only stopped ten mins for pictures. They are not the biggest you will see but if you are passing then pull over for ten mins

Either take a tuk tuk or bus down the road from Ella to Wellawaya and a short way along on the right hand side is this spectacular waterfall.

Don't expect much and you will not be disappointed. Some 34 people have died who went to climb on the rocks

Beautiful spot, grab some mangoes, take a bottle of water, dressing in a swimsuit i'm going to enjoy the cool water at this waterfall. Don't bother getting a TUKTUK there, it's 20R on the local bus to and from and worth the thrill of the ride!

Lovely falls although we visited on a rainy day so wasn't the clearest of views but did mean not too many tourists were there !

Waterfall is just near the main road from Wellawaya to Ella. You can have a nice bath here in the small pond. You can go just under the water drop from the lowest section. Only down side is there are many visitors coming to this place. Recommend not to go on a wekend or a public holiday in Sri lanka.... More
