Rawana Ella, Sri Lanka

This scenic waterfalls holds a special place in the Hindu mythology. It is believed that Ravana (from the Hindu epic Ramayana) hid Sita, the wife of Rama in one of the caves behind the waterfall. This event took place after he kidnapped Sita from India and brought her to Lanka. This cave is known as the Rawana Ella cave and the entire area comes under the purview of the Rawana Ella Wildlife Sanctuary.

But, this is not the only special thing about this place. This multi-tiered cascading waterfall is one of Sri Lanka’s widest waterfall and is quite a sight to behold especially with its sheer height and surrounding structure.

This waterfall is located about 11 kilometres from Bandarawela and is enroute to Yala National Park from Nuwara Eliya if you take the Ella route. The Rawana Ella lies 4,470 feet above sea level on the foundation of a cliff.
