  • The 8-kilometre hike in the beautiful National Park is a must for every nature lover. As a result of mist rising in the course of the morning, a start of the "walk" is to shortly after sunrise recommend so that the views of the small and large "Worlds End" (600 m or 1000 m in depth) can be enjoyed without being disturbed.

  • We started very early (like all the tourists). A driver who drives a up to the parkeingang, is essential. At the desk for tickets, there was already a long queue. The 8 km trail are designed in a circuit so that man isn't the same way in must go out back. We recommend the route straight ahead (or against the clockwise) to take here to reach the waterfall at first. Then worlds end and finally Little worlds end. The proposed route is also so beautiful, because here in the morning the Sun is pretty deep and conjures a wonderful landscape. Most tourists rather take the other direction and you almost running against the current. We were mostly totally alone, the rest was very exalted. A must-see for any visitor to the area.

  • We started from Nuwara Eliya at 5:30 to go to Horton as soon as possible, advise you to reach the World's end before 10, otherwise the clouds will cover the landscape. The ticket to enter is really expensive, are 20 euros each, and what is there is just too much. The ride is a walk that lasts about 3 hours, at some points, the trail passes through trees with huge roots so it can be difficult if you do not have proper footwear. The waterfall is cute, but nothing stunning resounding or while the World's end is a steep Escarpment really nice but not worth the price of admission! Then keep in mind that there are no barriers nor poles, which can be considered substantially or totally wicked. Even animals are scarce, aside from two gorgeous Stags at the entrance you are made even fondle, but otherwise I didn't see any other pets. In conclusion, it would be a nice ride to do if cost half as much, but as it stands is really disappointing, I'm sorry but I don't recommend it, home alive on the slopes of Val di Susa and see waterfalls and views much nicer and free.

  • #better to not going there-TOO EXPENSIVE FOR FOREIGNERS *********************************************************************************** RS.3500 ( $24) for one person I'm not writing this review as a Sri Lankan.(but i'm sri lankan) i think, entrance fee is too much for our foreigners. In horton plains,Nothing. ONLY NATURE VIEW. If someone plant those every trees & flower plants ,someone dug the World's end, no problem to take money like this..in horton plans, when you go to toilet, it is .20rupees. it is cheap price.20 rupees nothing...but problem is, why should we pay that 20 rupees? toilets are never cleaned.it was stinking. better to jump to the worlds end.so why they charge money for toilets? i don't accept this . ඉතුරු ටික සිංහලෙං කියන්නං.. කෙනෙකුට යමක් දීල හම්බ කරපියව්.පාන්දර නැගිටගෙන දුර ගෙවාගෙන ඇවිත් ටිකට් එකේ ගාන දැක්කම මිනිස්සු බය වෙනව. හෙන හත ගහන වැඩ ඕවා. පරම්පරා ගානකට සාප වෙනව උබලට. මොනා උනත් මිනිස්සු යකෝ.. සේවාවක් දීලා ගාන ගනියව්.. ටිකට් එක 1500ට අඩු කරපියව්. බලු වැඩ නොකර.
  • The unique flora and fauna keeps you interested throughout the trail. Baker's falls is the highlight of the place. Saw the gorgeous bear monkey (purple faced leaf monkey) and all three types of squirrels. Walking alongside the river is amazing
  • Very good place to feel nature. You have to walk around 9km. Waterfalls, worlds end, mini worlds end can be seen here. Best time to visit is early in the morning. At least 7 am. Park is open form 6.30 am.
  • The 9km hike is oke. Maybe tough for older people. We like hiking but this is walking in a row of tourists. Worlds end is nice but not that spectacular. Price is too high for what you get, but nature is always good. So 3 stars for the small snakes and the birds we see.
  • This place is well worth a visit if you want to see the spectacular hill country of Sri Lanka. The weather is very changeable, so it's a good idea to pack warm clothing and decent wet weather clothing. There weren't many animals, we did see a deer and giant squirrel when we were out there.
