Visit Horton plains, which is located on a high windswept saddle at
about 2134 meters above sea level. The plains are an expanse of misty
grassland with scraggy trees and ice-cold rivulets. This area is a
home for Sri Lanka Whistling Thrush, Orange-billed Babbler,
Yellow-eared Bulbul, black-throated Munia and many more birds.
If you like to enjoy the beauty of the area you can visit the 'World's
End', considered to be the finest view in all of Sri Lanka. The

name. You can also see the beautiful Backerís falls.
