“Not what I expected”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

I'm not sure what I was expecting, but it wasn't what I saw. I will admit the views are beautiful, but not any better than other mountain views throughout the high country. In fact, the view from the highway in Haptale was even more impressive and you didn't have to hike to it! Granted the walk through the forest and plains was nice, but I'm not sure I'd recommend it for the $30 price tag and that's just the admission to the park and doesn't include transportation if you don't have your own vehicle.

“A fantastic hike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

Walking through Horton's Plains and trekking to the World's End was a super experience. The view was awesome. We had a wonderful trip. The elks, Bakers waterfalls, stream, colourful birds and the rolling hills made it much more enjoyable.

“View the southern coast on a clear day.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

Passing through the Horton Plains national park is very pleasant. You can see healthy grown elk looking at you. The walk down to the worlds end is a nice experience through the stunted forest. On your way you can go down to the stream to enjoy the water falls. On a clear day you can see up to the southern coast otherwise the Non Peryl tea estate down below.

“A must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

This is one of the most beautiful hikes that I have ever done. The look out over the world's end looks alot like Machu Picchu. This was a highlight of our Sri Lanka leg of the trip. Make sure to leave Kandy by 6am for great views.
