Ravana's Secret - Nuwaraeliya
0 Km


In the hill country high above Sri Lanka’s famous Ravana Ella falls is a series of magnificent waterfalls framed by ancient silver-grey rocks. For hundreds of years they were only visible from afar. Their true grandeur was a well-kept secret, revealed only to soaring eagles.

Legend tells that the fearful King Ravana kept beautiful Princess Sita imprisoned near Ella in a cavern with a heart-shaped pool. Intrigued by this story,graduallyit was possible to cut a path and steps right up to the falls. The second fall plunges 70 feet into a huge cavern, where there was a heart-shaped pool!

The name of the estate, ‘Pearlbank’, is taken from the Pearl Banks, a group of small islands off the north-west coast of Sri Lanka, where pearls were harvested many years ago. Pearlbank is a small organic agricultural company striving to replenish the environment by natural processes.
