I was looking forward to a few hours of walking in nature & the anticipated scenery. And it was a nice fairly flat walk atop the plains. And that is where the expectations ran out. NOTE: It poured rain & was freezing when I went....More

While it is a little pricey, it's well worth the trip. There's a very varied landscape and we spotted different animals too. Worlds end was pretty cool but the trail itself is the highlight. Make sure to go really early (we left our place at...More

Sri Lanka is a great country but this attraction is nothing much. If you come from Europe you'll see nothing new here as it's nothing more than a countryside walk in typcial European scenery with a decent view at the end - certainly doesn't live...More

Hello Good people! Need your suggestion again. I understand, transport needs to be reserved to visit horton plains. We have booked our hotel nearby city centre. So, which transports are available to go there? Should we book it before and how much will be the transport cost? Who will pay the fees for the vehicle at the park, us or the driver? And lastly, I understand entry tickets are available at entrance from 6am, so no need to buy the tickets earlier, am I right? Will highly appreciate your responses.
