World’s end is situated at the Southern end of the Park, and is a cliff with a 880 m drop. A drop so steep, you will feel that you are standing at the World’s end and a step further could give you vertigo.
Baker’s Falls is situated on a tributary of Belihul Oya in Horton Plains National Park. Named after a famous explorer Sir Samuel Baker, one can see beautiful flower bushes around it adding to the beauty of the whole place.

Lovely walk to the ‘world’s edge’ albeit wet. Unfortunately when we got there all we could see was cloud. Apparently there are clear days. The visitors centre had an interesting history of the plains. Sadly it was inhabited by elephants until the British colonists shot them all for sport. Very sad.
It's a long trek be prepared to walk. Have comfortable shoes start early. Suggest hire a guide and do a anti-clockwise tour it will be easy So that way back is not steep , Ensure you have something packed as once back you will be famished and there is hardly any place to eat. Best to tell hotel to pack something and get a thermos with hot tea and coffee , Carry some candies or a fruit for instant energy. It takes 3 hrs plus to cover all
A place with many amazing stops. Nice place to travel with any one. Its open every day in year. Tickets can be obtained from its 2 main entrances. Only keep footsteps and take pictures.
A visit to mother nature... Highly recommended for those who love to explore nature. Breathtaking surrounding, cold climate and beautiful animals Can be bit crowded on school holidays or long weekends.
