Primarily made up of cloud forest and montane grassland, Horton Plains National Park is in the central highlands of Sri Lanka, accessible from Nuwara Eliya.

Its diverse topography makes for great hiking with the popular 10km trek through the forest leading to a sheer precipice known as the World’s End. It culminated in the Baker’s Falls, an impressive formation where the waters of the Belihul Oya tributary tumbles over boulders.

Sambar deer are regularly spotted here as well as toque macaques, leopards, mongoose and muntjacs as well as a wide variety of amphibians.
