World’s End, not for the faint-hearted!

World’s End, not for the faint-hearted!

If you have ever wondered what it must be like to be an eagle on its cliff-top eyrie, visit World’s End on Horton Plains National Park.

It is not for the faint-hearted. Standing on the massive boulder overlooking the void, with the forested hillside spread out far below, you can see why it is known locally as Lovers’ Leap.

Depending on the time of year, vertigo is ameliorated by rolling mists that make the experience more akin to sitting on a cloud—literally on top of the world.

Horton Plains themselves have centuries of history. Stone tools from the Balangoda culture have been found there, while today the nature reserve features sambar deer and many endemic birds.
