I paid a visit with my family on 22nd February and unfortunately they have changed the closing hours. Previously it was 4 pm. Now it's 2.30 p.m. After that they don't issue tickets. So if you are planning make sure that you be by the entry gate before 2.30pm.

Later on we noticed a board showing all new amended times by the road at Boralanda junction. But the texts are too small for a passing vehicle to see. And even the heading says tickets are being issued until 04 pm. But we were there by. 3.20 pm.

Would have make a huge difference if the board and details were more prominent.

We arrived at 6 am. The hike was nice. beatiful scenery. we saw cameleons and a giant squirrel and heard a monkey.

we paid 24.000 SLR (50 USD) for two persons.

Given that you can find similar places all over the world (e.g. swiss alps at sunrise with chamois and groundhogs) I find it completely overpriced.

Really enjoyable hike with beautiful views. We went as a large group of mixed hiking abilities, everyone enjoyed and completed hike. The park is well kept with no rubbish on the track.

Restroom doors locks need fixing, alot of them didn't lock/shut properly.

We loved the horton plains. Before going I was a bit skeptical since I was reading the reviews of it being too expensive and nothing to see. But this was definitely worth it! Amazing views with a comfortable easy hike. One of the highlight of our trip and would definitely not skip it. I would recommend starting with the falls first, which is left of the track.

Hortain Plains National Park is the largest plain situated in central hills of Sri Lanka. There are two entries to this place named as Pattipola and Ohiya gates. Hortain plain gates can be easily approached by train. In addition you can drive from Nuweraeliya to Hortain Plains.
Circular trail of Hortain Plains is the main attraction and you will come across Chimney Pool, Baker's Fall, Great World's End and Small World's end along this circular trail.
It is advisable to visit the place early in the morning as mist can cover up the view of World's end.
Camping at Hortain plain is an unique experience due to chilling cold at night. There are three camp sites and you need to pre book it from Wild life department office.
Hiking Kirigalpoththa and Thotupala mountains (second and third highest of SL) are another two treks which you can do in one day.

I found the small 'end of World' view much more pleasant and beautiful than the actual one. Probably it was too crowded on top.. Dont stress yourself too much if you are not able to make it to the top. View is equally if not better from the lower level

We arrived around 1.30 to the fate and we had to wait 1/2hr until ticket counter person finish his lunch. He spoke very rude way to us. Ticket price is too much. Nothing to see for the overpriced ticket. Avoid this place. Not recommended at all.

We went Horton Plain NP and is one of memorable tour. As we were advice to go early we start 5am from Nuwaraeliya. Hence we were able to witness beautiful sunrise at the top.NP is real example for the bio diversity of SL, We were able to witness so many Flora and fiana.
