Horton Plains

Despite that the park is very famous and often crowded by tourists it is worth getting up early to see the sunrise and the plateau (at 2000 m a.s.l.) rising above the clouds and making the place truly stunning. Unfortunately foggy forest and a high grass  don’t make it easy to see any animals but trust me you definitely won’t be disappointed! I recommend you to go on the left side when you reach the forking road to get to the Little Worlds End and Worlds End viewing points as soon as possible to see the whole beautiful landscape. When you get there you’ll also finish the round with the picturesque Baker Waterfall (: Entire tour will take you around 3 to 4 hours depending on your walking speed. To get there you’ll have to rent a tuk tuk or a car as it’s not possible to get there by a public transport but as I said before it’s good to be there at around 6 am as till 11 the whole plateau is covered by clouds. The entrance fee is 15 USD (depending on number of visitors). A good starting point is a Nuwara Eliya and from that point is take 75 minutes to get to the entrance gate.
