Horton Plains

The picture-perfect Horton Plains National Park, Sri Lanka is a place where time itself seems to stand still in awe of the surpassing splendour of nature. Ethereal mist engulfs the vast spaces of the national park so beautifully while flourishing foliage adds gorgeous hues of green to every slope and valley. The cold mountain breeze carries the faint fragrance of a thousand blooms that gently open in the sunshine. A tour across the majestic territories of the plains will surely give you memories to cherish for a lifetime.

Horton Plains boasts an altitude of 2,100 to 2,300 metres. The enchanting cloud forest and the lush greenery greatly appeal to trekkers here. The region is rich with flora and fauna too. Many endemic species of plants and animals can be found within the territories of the national park, making it a veritable paradise for nature lovers.

Quite a number of travellers visit Horton Plains National Park to witness the outstanding beauty of World’s End and Baker’s Falls. World’s End is a sheer precipice that has a drop of around 1,200 metres! There is yet another sheer drop located adjacent to World’s End which is smaller in size and so is aptly called Mini World’s End. Baker’s Falls which glistens like liquid silver amidst the verdant green growth of the surrounding landscape is also an enchanting attraction that possesses remarkable beauty.
