World's End, Nuwara Eliya

(4.1/5 based on 1,400+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • We started early from Nuwara Eliya but it was already crowded when we arrived and we should have come earlier. Entrance fees are quite expensive. The hike is easy, we headed towards World's end where ...  more »
  • Our guide has offered us, to go only part way, the entire circular trail's but is strongly recommended. You needed good three hours at a brisk pace. I recommend the way in a clockwise direction to go there earlier when the two ' world's end' is points. Very early break-up and so you have the chance to be able to enjoy the magnificent view without fog. Attract solid Schuhhwerk in any case, the way is partly Rocky, steep and slippery.
