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.

  • Stunning view. It’s big so I recommend you get there early. It was getting dark while I was still exploring. But it was surreal view. I want to go back. Highly recommended if you like nature.

  • Go by the right hand side when u see the Y junction, u can safe time. If u are not rushing and want to complete the route, just keep going straight and u will come back to the Y junction eventually.

  • It is a 10.5 kilometre round trip if you are seeing the end of the world and Bakers falls. Both are worth the walk as you do walk through a beautiful part of the world. Make sure you have good walking shows on as you will need them even though the locals cruise past in thongs and sandals
