World's End, Nuwara Eliya

4.1
#1 of 29 in Wildlife in Central Province
Wildlife Area Nature / Park
In the cloud-covered heights of the Horton Plains National Park, World's End offers one of the most dramatic vantage points in Sri Lanka. From a sheer cliff drop of some 1,200 m (4,000 ft), the view encompasses almost the entire park. Hike the moderate 4 km (2.4 mi) trail from the entrance to the park's highest point, looping round Baker's Falls for the full 9.5 km (5.9 mi) experience. For the best views, plan your trip for early morning, when clouds are least likely to spoil the vista. Take plenty of water and snacks, and dress in layers against the chilly high-elevation conditions.

  • The rent of a mini van and the hefty entrance fee to the park make it an expensive Sunday morning walk (100€ for 4 persons). The views are nice but these you can get in any mountain area, the landscap...  more »
  • Beautiful ballad (easy with kids 5 to 7 years) to discover a superb landscape, a varied flora, beautiful waterfalls. However concerning wildlife except deer l entry we n has not seen much. Tip: climb the Hill after Little World s End and take the small trails: beautiful scenery away from the crowd (best view that at World s End). For us, no fog, the weather was even tended to clear up over the morning. Big downside: at least 1 hour between the time we arrived (6:30) and the entrance in the Park, because selling tickets very badly organized and mess at the level of ds cars. Rates Rs 3500.

  • We walked 9 km with a four-year old, so it's really not a difficult walk. The views are unique, very enjoyable!  more »
