With attractions such as World’s End and Baker’s Falls, Horton National Park is one of the most popular National Park in Sri Lanka and is regarded as a Must-see. The park is home to a variety of Flora and Fauna making it an interesting place for the Wild life and Nature enthusiasts alike. Best time to visit is early in the morning (6 AM to 10 AM) as it will let you have a clear view of the surroundings, mountains and valleys. It starts to get a little foggy around Noon, and you might not be able to get a clear view of the surroundings. Best time to visit is from January to March.
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.

- Don’t forget to carry water and food along, as plastic water bottles aren’t allowed inside the Park, and after a long hike, you would definitely need something to recharge.

A must visit if in the area. The whole trek which includes stops at 'worlds end' ( a peak with a steep drop), mini worlds end and bakers fall is about 9km in total. The park officials do a great job in keeping the park clean and plastic free. Some areas of the path can be a little challenging, but over all it's a great walk around for all age groups.
Yes you'll have to hit the road as early as 5:30 am yet totally it! Beautiful breathtaking and peaceful place. It was around 3 hours walk (including enjoying the view break) we were kind of fast walkers compared to others. Totally worth the trip not to be be missed.
Very interesting place. Calm peaceful area with best climate. Have a nice walk and see the world's end. A full day trip. Entire family can enjoy.
Horton plains can feel very attractive climate. You will be able to visit Worlds' end and Baker's waterfalls at there. When you visit the place, it is better to wear respective and suitable dresses for cold and better dresses for hiking. Beautiful, relatively easy, it was amazing walk in 10 km trail. Miraculous views, be very careful there are no fences at World's End. Polythene, cigarettes, match boxes or lighters and hard liquor not allowed.
Nice place, it is better to visit in the early morning if you are planning to visit World’s end to avoid the mist. You can also visit the Baker’s falls on the way to World’s end. You cannot bring plastic shopping bags and disposable water bottles to park so bring your food in a container and bring your own water bottle.
