Ravana Ella Falls is a breathtaking waterfall, 1080 feet high where it cascades into several falls. The stream is a main tributary of Kirindi Oya plunges with foaming spray over a series of ledges into the valley close to a bed in the road. The water rise from Wewtenna highland above the rocks, where in general the rocky underground of the waterfalls in Sri Lanka consists of hard gneiss or granite, but here the material is khondalite, a kind of limestone which undergoes decay faster. This has resulted in many caves being formed near the falls. These tunnels prove beyond doubt the architectural brilliance of King Ravana. The tunnels served as a quick means of transport through the hills and also as a secret passage. They networked all the important cities, airports and dairy farms. A close look at these tunnels indicates that they are man-made and not natural formations.
