We really enjoyed the morning hiking to the Worlds End in the National Park. It is quite a rugged hike but not difficult as long as you wear good hiking or (joggers) walking shoes. The canyon, waterfall and scenery is beautiful and sometimes breathtaking. Walking...More

Like the title suggests, I experienced some of the most amazing views I have ever seen! Went to the 'mini world's end' trail and it took about 2 hours

Scenic national park, ride to the park provides different landside compared to other places in Sri Lanka, be there early enough in order to still have a good view, in the afternoon the fog will come and you do not see anything at world's end,...More

Very expensive - the most expensive excursion I’ve ever been on! Not worth it sadly. Great views but be prepared to part with c$100. Suspect our driver took a sizeable cut and our fault for not getting clarity before we set off but we assumed...More

At 2000m above sea level you’ll need a jacket & or jumper as it is quite cold early in the morning. I did not remove my jumper until 10AM after about 8 km into the hike. Wear layers, so you can remove as you heat up.
