We made an impulse decision to come here at 10:30 am in Nuwara Eliya - so effectively arrived about midday. Our guidebook warns NEVER to do this & once we got to "World's End" we saw the "white wall of cloud" it said we would. However, we decided to sit & wait to see if it would lift - while waiting we saw a woodpecker & lots of butterflies and then, about when we were ready to give up, we started to see shapes in the clouds & in the space of about 15 minutes the view unfolded. Seeing it "appear" like this was really cool, and then in less than 5 minutes we watched the clouds reform in front of our eyes & it was back to the "white wall" again. So if you arrive & can't see anything, try to wait patiently for a bit (we ate our lunch) and hopefully you'll see the view also.

What we loved about coming so "late" was that we were often the only people around while we were walking, the light was lovely for photographs and we probably spent more time than we would have otherwise.

Tip - look out for the sambur deer - they seem to partially tame around the buildings.

We went there with three persons , as a foreigner of course you have to pay about 100 times the account of a inhabitant. It was 25 dollars p.p. the walk is three ours and to do with normal shoes , but ........it is not easy! The view is good if you have good wheater.

A great time out with views to die for at Lands End, and nice diverse landscaping through the walk around the plain (which isn't too challenging despite the early start which is a must if you are to get the most out of the trip).

A guide can make all the difference though and these can be hit and miss on occassion - Nimal (easy to book through Single Tree Hotel, Nuwara Eliya) was excellent, friendly, knowledgeable, and always quick at pointing out life camouflaged in the Plains.

Hiking to World's End is fun and interesting. If you go later in the day you have a better chance at seeing wildlife. I do NOT like the Sri Lankan tourism habit of charging much higher admission rates for foreign visitors.
