    Recommend visiting the place for nature lovers and scenic. Best to wear warm clothes and scarves for high winds and cooler weather. The ticket price of RS 400 and RS 1000 per person for the Jeep. Bumpy but the Jeep can cross it easily.

    Rs 50 for entrance ticket, but then to get to the plains itself you need to hire a jeep from there, which costs Rs. 2000! There is nothing much to see on your way to the top of the plains. There is a small platform at the top, where you can get a fantastic 360 view of the entire plains and the surrounding mountain ranges. Its unfortunate they don't allow private vehicles access to the plains. Rs. 2000 is way too expensive for the Jeep, considering the shortness of the journey, and the lack of any major sights to see.

    Must go attraction very close to Nuwara Eliya. About 10 min drive from town. From there you need to hire a Safari jeep to reach the location. Excellent view and you may found a ring of mountains which is worth to visit.

    Beautiful place worth visiting. Although there are no animals. the 360 view is priceless. Must see place

    Good 360 view of distance mountains, if weather is supporting.

    Just a plain land with 360 degree view. Nothing much
