Horton Plains National Park is a breathtakingly beautiful protected area in the central highlands of Sri Lanka. It is known for its diverse landscapes, including montane grasslands, cloud forests, and evergreen forests, as well as its unique wildlife and stunning views. The park is home to several species of endemic birds, including Sri Lanka whistling thrush, as well as mammals such as sambar deer, purple-faced langurs, and endemic toque macaques.

The most famous attraction in the park is World’s End, a sheer cliff with an 870m drop offering panoramic views of the surrounding mountains and tea estates.

It is best to visit the park early in the morning, as the weather is often unpredictable and mist can obscure the views later in the day.
