  • Trekking will take about 4hours (depending on your rythme. Best to go very early in the morning to avoid the crowd and the frog (we left Nuwara Eliya around 6.45am). The parc is one of the cleanest i ...  more »

  • #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.
