The location had been identified as a heritage site by UNISCO. It named as protected wildlife park in Sri Lanka. Hence, it's a must location for nature lovers. The journey takes one hour from Nuwara-Eliya. It requires walking around the park and private vehicles are not permitted to enter into the park and it's quite a risky journey during the... More

The drive going to Horton Plains was long but really worth it. Going up, you will see a diversity of towering trees. When we finally arrived, we were welcomed by a Sambar grazing. What an amazing encounter with a wildlife! We had some difficulty in parking because there's a lot of tourist buses and cars. Going down was also a... More

Baker's Falls and World's End are nice to visit and walk (a good three hours to do the loop) goes through many different types of environments - all different and beautiful in their own way. Signage on the trail is not the best so always ask others which way to go to get to the different sites. Your bags are... More

Indika was an excellent companion through out our tour in Lanka. You may contact with him on 0094-775585555. This place is recommended to visit early morning so that you can easily reach upto World end... More

Compared to the rest of Sri Lanka, the Horton Plains feel like a complety different world. It feels somewhat like the Scottish Highlands (with different flora and fauna). Make a stroll to World's End and Baker's Falls, a 7.5km round trip with astonishing views.

Although pretty misty to start with our excellent guide Namil showed us the wildlife and talked us through the history and botany of the park The mist cleared at World's End and the view was magnificent.
