  • Wonderful experience. Horton was the next stop on our trip after Sri Lanka. We love hiking and because we knew that this attraction will be particularly suitable for us. Do not get disappointed. It was wonderful in the morning before pick up out of bed to see the wonderful world of wild nature. We Highly Recommend!

  • My wife is not Srilankan. She was charged Rs.4,000/- to get in an I was charged Rs. 60/-🤷🏽‍♂️. This is not fair at all. They we asking me a proof of evidence that she is my wife. I had a soft copy on my mobile but they said they need to see the original. If we were a group they said they could charge Rs. 3,000/-. No emergency points, no protection fens at the worlds end, no mobile signals, no path for disabled people.
  • Good place for hiking. Water fall, river, plains in a huge area, small forest animals (not harming, not poisonous) everything is included. Around 11km journey to return by foot. Nice weather. Remember to take food and water. Taps and toilets included but limited. No polythene.
  • Stayed in the wild life bungalow for three days. Saw lots of elk, jungle fowl, rhino horn lizard, leopard and a lots of rare birds. Temperature is on the low with the wind for your imagination. Very nice. And inexpensive. .
  • One of our world heritage. Latest archaeological facts says that before 10,000 years back, our ancient relations farm paddy in this location which means we ate rice before 10,000 years back. It is a nice experience to be Horton plains, Bakers Falls and rest.
  • One of the best creation of nature. Get there around 8am. You will be able to see bakers falls, Mini world's end and Worlds end. It's about 11Km circular trekking. I recommend to visit this beautiful place.
