Motherfucking vertical panorama. The vertical part is Imaad’s idea. View giant
Honestly, just look at the picture. This is a vertical panorama which captures most of the falls. Ravana Falls (there are a few actually) is visible from throughout Ella, most notably from Ambiente. If you follow the rail tracks and turn at the second Buddha shrine, you get there. Go down to the left (or swim across) from the right and you can descend down a few levels. But be careful.
I’ve tried bathing in it, slipped and ended up hanging by my fingers till Mendis pulled me out. Hanging horizontally, mind you, not over the edge, but the water is strong and you can get slipped down pretty fast. Dudes are hanging out brushing their teeth or whatever, of course. The casual hardcoreness of Sri Lankans never ceases to amaze me.
This time Imaad was wearing rubber slippers and fell. He used his hand to lift his camera and fell literally on his face. Respect.
Anyways, two things I’ve learned not to fuck with – waterfalls and elephants.
But double anyways, there’s some more photos of the falls coming up. I just struggled to squeeze this one out of the iPad and wanted to put it up.
