We visited these falls when we were on our way from N.Eliya to Ella. Had an overnight in the Waterfall Villas from where you can see these falls .

When we visited this fall, the amount of natural water was low and so the falls had virtually dried up. I imagine it would be cute on a normal day.

We were driving along this road so it was not out of our way, but definitely worth stopping. We were in a middle of a wet spell so the fall was flowing well, and although we were quite a long way it was still a spectacualr sight

Our driver showed us these falls as one of his favourites and after heavy rain it was a great sight. Easy to view and worth the stop

Devon is a smaller water fall but worth a stop. It is a pity that it's only a trickle during the dry season as most of the forest cover above it has been cut down by the underworld gangs.

These falls are near Nuwara Elyia, they are high but narrow, and can be seen from far from a view point. It is a nice site and not far from St Claire's falls, so you can do both easily. I just couldn't get anywhere close to them. I wonder if that is even possible?

The sad part is, you really cant go near this place. You would have to make do with seeing it from the highway. Its quite scenic !

Beautiful and narrow but tall waterfall. You can see it from the street. It is surrounded by greenaries. Opposite is St. Clair tea store where you can relax and enjoy a warm cup of tea. About 1-2 km from this waterfall is St Clair waterfall. So it is kind like 2 in 1 thing. You visit one place, you see... More

Situated by Hatton - Nuwara Eliya road tourists can easily observe this waterfall from the observation points. If one wants to get closer to the waterfall, take Nawalapitiya road from Dimbula junction. Can go near the top of the waterfall. Makes a great view through the tea estates.
