Description

Horton Plains in Sri Lanka is the coldest and windiest location in the country covered by wild grasslands and interspersed with patches of thick forest, rocky outcrops, filigree waterfalls, and misty lakes. 

The surprising diversity of the landscape is matched by the wide variety of wildlife. The world’s end is a sheer cliff, with a drop of about 4,000 feet (1,200 m). 

It is one of the most-visited parts of Horton Plains National Park, and a key tourist attraction place in Sri Lanka. Large mammals could seldom be seen at Horton Plains. Samber is a common sight at dusk and in the early morning hours. 

Mammals that still occur in reasonable numbers include Kelaart’s long-clawed shrew Feroculus flocculus slender loris tardigrades endemic to the montane toque macaque Macaca Sinica, purple-faced langur Presbutis entellus, rusty-spotted cat Felis rubigimosus and etc. Horton Plains National park harbors 12 species of endemic birds are recorded only for Horton Plains.
