  • Very well maintained place and you need to take a jeep to reach the summit. You won't be able to get down the vehicle until you reach the summit. View is breathtaking
  • A great place to visit with friends. You can't travel by your vehicle. There are safari jeeps to travel. You can call to the contact number and have a good idea of the journey. approximate time - 2 hrs. Clear weather condition will be good advantage.
  • Without a single doubt this is the MOST BEAUTIFUL place in Nuwara Eliya. This place located in a government farm, so they won't let you go inside after 4 p.m. After entering the farm it's about a 30 minutes ride to reach this amazing place. You have to pay for this ride about 2000 per vehicle 8 - 10 passengers can ride in those jeeps. A little worlds end is also there. Trust me you must go and see this place if you are lucky enough you will meet lots of elks. Although they won't let you go inside after 4 p.m trust me best time to visit this place is after 4 p.m. It's possible to go inside after 4 p.m if you know someone work in the farm. The most beautiful place in Nuwara Eliya.
  • Amongst the jagged peaks of the Central Highlands of Sri Lanka; are the surprisingly beautiful and vast slopes of the Moon Plains. Located just off the Nuwara Eliya city; this most recently opened attraction, was once the dump site of the tons of garbage used by the dwellers of the nearby city. It was cleaned and reconditioned in 2010, and is now classified as an Agricultural and Environmental Tourism Zone by the Municipality of Nuwara Eliya. Covered in a verdant carpet of healthy grass; the Moon Plains are home to many wildlife elk, wild buffaloes, dear, the occasional leopard and many types of birds. However, the main point of interest is the viewpoint of the ‘Mini World’s End’. A location on the apex of a sharply dropping cliff, that gives a 360º view of the surrounding landscape. As such, the Moon Plains prove to be an ideal place for a hike or a cycling tour, with beautiful landscapes galore. The view from the Mini World’s Peak at sunrise is especially spectacular; with the golden glow of the sun, mixing with the mist that wreaths the peaks and valleys surrounding the area. This photo-worthy location is not to missed during a visit.
  • It was an interesting journey going on the jeeps.. beautiful scenery.. But we only saw cows.. Don't hold your breath hoping to see anything else
