Horton Plains

If you’re an explorer or serial hiker, this trek is not to be missed when in Sri Lanka. “World’s End” as the name suggests is a frighteningly beautiful 880m high cliff atop which sits the highest plateau in the island. Most often it is a surreal experience as the clouds dance about the edge of the cliff and the wind occasionally parts the mist to reveal the drop below. Horton Plains also features several species of birds and plants that are endemic to the area. And another highlight of it is Baker’s Falls, which is a welcome waterhole to cool off after the overwhelming climb to World’s End.
