Was a very easy trek with so much beautiful scenery, you don’t need a guide and just follow the trails. We saw leopard foot prints from across one of the trails we were trekking which was very exciting! I’d come back again!

We traveled from central nuwara eliya early in the morning and start trekking around 6am. The plain is magical with mist and fog hanging high and low. Depending on luck you will spot a deer or two. You will hear all sorts of sound from...More

The views are amazing and well worth the 5 stars but the tracks around the area are more likely a 2 and in places very challenging and it appears that in June/July there are a lot of wash-aways which means you need to climb over...More

I arranged a tuk-tuk with my homestay in Haputale to go here very early one mid-week morning. This cost 2500lkr, as the drive is over an hour and the tuk-tuk driver waited for 3hrs (return trip). Entrance to the park is expensive, probably too expensive,...More

We were lucky to be there when the morning fog cleared. The place was just scenic. The experience of criss-crossing through the grasslands, forests, falls and finally out to the open again was invigorating.

Everyone told us the best chance of seeing Worlds End (a view from the top of a cliff edge looking down into the valley of a small town which is picturesque) was to go very early in the morning. We were so tired from climbing...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.
