Walk through the plantation to get close to the 97 m (318 ft) high Devon Falls. The cascade was named after the famous British coffee planter, whose plantation sits nearby. Head to the viewpoint located in front of the Melsna Tea Castle, and take a break for a nice cup of tea while you admire views of the falls, which can also be seen from the main road. Enjoy the intact natural scenery, then get close to the waterfall for some incredible photos. A visit to Devon Falls represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Nuwara Eliya trip maker to plot your vacation.

  • Really wonderful falls.. we were astonished by the look and feel of mother nature. You need to walk around 1km to get to see the awesome view and enjoy the swim in water. Such a pure love you can see in the falls. You will thoroughly enjoy. You must visit this once in your lifetime..!!!
  • We got the bus from hatton which was easy enough. They dropped us off to a stunning view of the waterfall and mountains. We even had a group of monkeys come say hello to us. It was a lovely afternoon
