The Best Nuwara Eliya Waterfalls You Must See - Treat your eyes to the stunning waterfalls in Nuwara Eliya

Nuwara Eliya, known as Little England is a delightful place to be - where the weather is absolutely perfect with so many beautiful waterfalls.


Lover's Leap Waterfall

Likely the most well-known waterfall in Nuwara Eliya, the lover's leap waterfall is also one of the easily accessible ones. Getting to the fall doesn't require great hiking skills as it is only a small walk which takes about 30 minutes. The legend has it that there were two young lovers whose love was not approved by their parents, so they jumped to their death from the top of the waterfall. The waterfall is about a 30-meter drop and falls to a small natural pool.


Bomburu Ella Falls

The Bombura Ella Falls is quite steep and wide. It is about an hours drive away from Nuwara Eliya but the view of the waterfall is absolutely worth the drive. To get to the waterfall there is a hike which is about 3 kilometres long so if you love hiking and waterfall hopping then this is the perfect choice for you. The waterfall is beautiful and the water droplets blown in the wind are bound to freshen you up after the hike.


Devon Falls

Visiting the Devon Falls is on the list of things to do in Nuwara Eliya. This is a waterfall that is 97 meters tall and the view is indescribable. You can see the waterfall from many different locations as it is so tall and can be viewed from many different locations including some of the well-known tea estates in the vicinity. If you wish to go to a location nearby then you can see the full view of the waterfall you need to hike for about 3-4 kilometres and then you will have an uninterrupted view of the Devon Falls. From the Scottish Planter Glendevon Bungalow you get to see a distant view of the beautiful Devon falls flowing into the forest and disappearing.


Ramboda Falls

This is a popular waterfall in Nuwaraeliya as it is located on the main road from Kandy to Nuwara Eliya. Most people will stop by the waterfall, enjoy a cup of tea and warm roti while taking in the view. During the rainy season, the Ramboda Falls looks absolutely stunning as you get to see water flowing from many different locations and coming together in one location to fall the rest of the way. From afar the white clouds swiftly move through the different shades of greens in the forests.


St Clair's Falls

The St Clair's Falls is another popular waterfall as it has easy access. The road leading to the waterfall is also extremely beautiful as it falls along with tea estates. While making your way to the waterfall you get to witness the initial process of the tea making process which is the tea pluckers picking the tea leaves. The St Clair's waterfall is wide even though it is not very tall and the backdrop for the waterfall makes it a unique formation than most other waterfalls.
