In the cloud-covered heights of the Horton Plains National Park, Horton Plains National Park offers one of the most dramatic vantage points in Sri Lanka. From a sheer cliff drop of some 1,200 m (4,000 ft), the view encompasses almost the entire park. Hike the moderate 4 km (2.4 mi) trail from the entrance to the park's highest point, looping round Baker's Falls for the full 9.5 km (5.9 mi) experience. For the best views, plan your trip for early morning, when clouds are least likely to spoil the vista. Take plenty of water and snacks, and dress in layers against the chilly high-elevation conditions. For Horton Plains National Park and beyond, use our Nuwara Eliya trip planner to get the most from your Nuwara Eliya vacation.
Horton Plains National Park Reviews
hoewel je vroeg op moet om aan deze wandeling te beginnen is het echt de moeite waard, Niet alleen het uitzicht is prachtig maar ook de omgeving op de weg ernaar toe.

I visited with children. This is a very nice environment. It is a world heritage. If you visit please protect the environment. Even a little action like feeding wild squirrel is not good.
It was a very cool and windy place ! Required to bring wind breaker for the trek. Nice trekking. Nice scenery at the “world end”. Suggest to bring breakfast box and have it when you arrive at “world end” view point and continue to trek for waterfall.
