Not sure why an entrance fee exists, when this is a natural dwelling. It should be enjoyed for free, especially since there is not much to see at the top. Also, this is a nesting site for swiftlets, which shouldn't really be disturbed, so advertising this as a tourist attraction puts them at risk.
I enjoyed the walk up through the forest though, with its views and bird life.

Climbing is very difficult but fun. this cave goes from underground to Sigirya. but the entrances and exits are closed for security reasons. so when you climb up, you only see the entrance of the cave

The Ravana Caves (supposedly where Ravana held Sita captive) is a natural cave with a steep walk (through steps and slopes) of almost a kilometre.

You have to climb maybe 700 steps which are well-carved and laid out. There are trees and grass on both sides of the route providing some shade. The cave itself is not that remarkable, just a big dark cave with bird nests on the roof. The entrance fee is 200 LKR.

Hot climb with some shade, to reach an unremarkable bat cave. Something to do if legend and leg training for Adams Peak is important to you. Shop at bottom sells water and hold in ground toilet. Maybe stick to rock temple down the road. Either tuk tuk to entrance or take chances wild parking, as you'll want to save your legs for the several hundred concrete steps.

I really enjoyed visiting the cave, because there were no guides or other tourists. I loved that I saw a lot of monkeys, birds and bats. The birds make small nests in the roof of the cave, so be careful not to disturb. The entrance is only 200 rupees, and there's a fun, little story on the ticket. The 600 steps is a good exercise 👍

A fairly strenuous climb of about 600 steps with beautiful scenery on one side and lush foliage on the other. The cave is itself is vey large, quite dark and somewhat wet. More information about the history of the cave would be welcome.

For those who like hiking it is a thing to do. For everyone else I really recommend not to go.

Entrance fee per adult is 200 rupiah and they charged me half for the kids even though it is supposed to be free. I don’t mind the money but they sell it to you in the village and on signs as a temple whilst it is just a bat cave. There is no information available and the local who accompanied us as a “guide” could not provide much more than ppl used it 5000 yrs ago.

The tea hut other reviews mentioned has collapsed but around the first bend after 80m you have two elderly ladies selling coffee or tea from flasks.

There are three tunnels, most of them collapsed but one could crawl in if interested. None is more than 40-50m though. The light from your phone is enough, don’t fall for them selling you torches.

I went with my two 7 yrs of kids but we expected a bit more than a cave and graffiti from local kids. Easy to skip this one.

I am sorry, but no. Too far away from Ella Rock (add hour to your trip) and so many stairs with same view and cave itself is not worthy at all. Temple is also not worthy for me. On the top of Ella Rock is nicer cave temple.
