In the cloud-covered heights of the Horton Plains National Park, Horton Plains National Park offers one of the most dramatic vantage points in Sri Lanka. From a sheer cliff drop of some 1,200 m (4,000 ft), the view encompasses almost the entire park. Hike the moderate 4 km (2.4 mi) trail from the entrance to the park's highest point, looping round Baker's Falls for the full 9.5 km (5.9 mi) experience. For the best views, plan your trip for early morning, when clouds are least likely to spoil the vista. Take plenty of water and snacks, and dress in layers against the chilly high-elevation conditions.

We could see some birds, deer and deer.
You can variety of plants. It’s so good for the students who study biology and botany. When you are walking through the path you can enjoy few climate changes.
It is known as end of the world start from one of the cliff in Horton plains. A beautiful view point with different colours of the woods, it depends on the season. Beautiful waterfalls in the reserve. Even visitors might have the opportunity to see some harmless wild animals and birds. A place to to visit and a place to remember for a long time.
