Horton Plains is the only national park located in the central highlands of Sri Lanka. It is a high plateau consisting of grassland, patches of forest, and some unusual high altitude vegetation. With its beautiful flora, fauna and wildlife, including about 100 species of birds (some of them are endemic), it is the place for nature lovers and bird watchers. The World's End is a sheer precipice where the southern Horton Plains suddenly ends and drops off to about 1000 meters. It is to be visited early morning before mists hide the view.

      Horton Plains National park is a natural world heritage site (UNESCO). It is situated about 1 hour dr
ive south of Nuwara Eliya.

Baker's Falls is a nice 20m (66 ft) high waterfall that is set amidst green forests in the Horton Plains. The path to the falls may be a bit steep. But the fall is definitely worth the visit since it can be seen from various spots, including view points arranged for the visitors.
