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.

Horton Plains National Park, Nuwara Eliya Reviews - Write a Review
What a beautiful place. Was the first one in the park and went to the left to see the end of the world's first instead of the waterfall. Everyone else seems to go to the waterfall first but then you risk the chance of having the clouds role in. We got 15 minutes of peace and quiet to ourselves at world's end ... Breathtaking
A National Park in a Plateau which is rich in bio-diversity with a large number of endemic species in the region. Your will be walking across spectacular landscapes. With Permission, you can camp here. Must visit place for nature lovers, campers, explorers as well as landscape photographers. Walking becomes a bit difficult during heavy rains, so if possible, best avoid the rainy season.
Amazing place. The trek is a fantastic experience and not too hectic. Start anti clockwise to get the best view and make sure to carry some water and biscuits as there's nothing available nearby.
A good place for visit with families when on a journey. Nice place . No polythene place . You must not bring any polythene products to this place . If brought , you have to keep them outside , at the entrance . Taking food items into the park - All the food items should be wrapped with papers not with polythenes. Beverages should be brought in glass or metal bottles . No plastic bottles . Ticketing - Everyone who enter the park should buy a ticket . Local and foreigners both.
Beautiful environment. Don't miss world end. Treks are easy in place and hard in others. Wear good shoes. Don't miss out on the sunrise.
