  • Who is in the region should visit also the Horton Plains National Park. For a moderate admission of about 1000lkr to get great insights into the nature. Main attraction is of course world's end. The notes to be early as there are to take seriously. 5min after our arrival raised the clouds and prevented the prospect for future guests.

  • Beautiful hooglandschap on 2130 m, route of 8 km run to world's end, really a must see. Have to get up early so everything else in the clouds and poor visibility,

  • We stood to 6 h in front of the entrance. We were allowed to within when the fog banks still hung in the air. This fog banks disappear quickly and be replaced by the Sun. World's End we could not climb because of too much wind. But the view at the bottom of the mountain is also well. Tip: do good walking shoes because it is and nature park

  • #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.
  • Superb view with very nicely conserved nature. You could see deer, birds along the walk to World End. The hike is about 3.5 hours both ways, with easy to follow roads. A bit rocky road but not too challenging. A must do.
  • Excellent place for nature lovers. Don't expect to see many animals, if you are lucky you might see deer, but that's about it. You can view the world's end as well as the Baker's waterfall too in Horton place.
  • 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.
  • It's not too much expensive for being a National Park. You will do 7km walking along different kind of forest, an spectacular waterfall and the World's End with incredible views. You will see a lot of deers when you will come back with the jeep, but not inside the park. Highly recommended.
