  • We visited Horton Plains in June 2017. The weather was beautiful but cold. Please do take a jacket and appropriate clothing. Suggest you also pack breakfast and plenty of water. We had a private drive...  more »
  • We hired a driver for our whole trip, so he took us to the park but it is very easy to book a trip there. At the main gate you pay for your ticket (6,600 LKR- for 2 I think). Then you drive up to the ...  more »

  • 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.
  • It's a beautiful park, but only few excitements like the worlds end and the Bakers fall. After half an hour hiking, all the views are more or less the same. The toilet is not maintained well, and there's only one little shop at the entrance for snack food and soft drinks. For foreign tourists, you are actually paying for your own ticket, the cab/tutu driver's ticket and parking. I ended up paying 1000+ rupee more than planned.
