Horton Plains

Horton Plains is a tremendous and fine creation of Mother Nature and is one of the coldest and windiest locations in the country. This World Heritage Site consists of marshy lands, grasslands with forests and reaches an altitude of 2,100 m above sea level. Containing habitats to many endemic plants is this great land with montane cloud or misty covered forests. The plains are enriched with high end biodiversity. In the southern edge of the Horton Plains is the very famous Worlds End which consists of  escarpment over 900m high. With a clear view from World`s end cone can see up the southern coast of Sri Lanka. It is surely a breathtaking moment when fully covered by mist. One can view Sambar deer as well as Mongoose, Giant Squirrel, Wild boar, Bear Monkey and Fishing Cat. This is truly a place of amazing views that generate much emotion as the surroundings heal your mind and soul.
