OK, every country has one must-see attraction that turns out to be overpriced and hyped up. For us in Sri Lanka, this was it. My kids were unsure whether they wanted to do the hard trek, but I convinced them by showing guidebooks which said...More

Horton Plains is unique in Sri Lanka as it is covers submontane and montane grasslands as well as cloud forests at an elevation which reaches 2,500 metres. The 9.5 kilometre walk can be completed in around 3 hours but the path is uneven and rocky...More

I think I would have given this place a 5* rating had I been able to see it. You see this is a very much weather dependant attraction. When we went the weather was misty, not rain but you had about 100 yards visibility. I'm...More

Really disappointed, paying 22 dollars/pers for entering an area where there is not much to see except some deers and birds, a mountain drop off and a waterfall is really not worth it. All the sceneries that you can see here, you can have them...More

An early start is recommended as it starts becoming hazy anytime from 10am. We saw deer, purple faced leaf monkies and many bird species. Unfortunately didnt catch sight of a leopard. The park is simply beautiful. So different from the rest of the country that...More

We had great weather and a lovely hike. The lace was crowded as it was the 1month holiday time for China, but staff staggered the entry ver well. We liked how they searched our bags for plastic so the park would remain uncontaminated. However, both...More

One of the best places to see the nature by its beauty. the trail is easy, the walking between the amazing plains, with all green and deer around, get to the edge of the cliff and see some unbreathable views.

As a Sri Lankan, I must say that is one of our favorite places to visit here. The plains are simply beautiful in the early morning with one side covered by trees and the other with vast plains. The plains are kept clean and most...More
