Horton Plains & World’s End

World’s End is located in Horton Plains National Park and at the border of Nuwara Eliya where it is known for a tea country. The area consists of hills bands with 1,000m elevations. World’s End means just like the name states has the highest gap in Sri Lanka. The edgy cliff is about 2,140m feet above sea level that gives cringe with fear, but also a stunning view of deep green jungles, mountains, tea plantations and villages down below.

On the contrary to the World’s End, Horton Plains National Park is a plateau area with peaks and valleys with the elevation of 2,000m. There are an innumerable selection of peculiar plants including flora and fauna that get many attentions by researchers. This is a prominent destination for visitors who seek to explore the nature of Sri Lanka.
