Trek to World’s End

There are quite a few places in Sri Lanka that make you feel that you are in ‘paradise’. One such place is World’s End, where the terrain drops into a 1000m drop in the Central Highlands of Sri Lanka. A nine kilometer trek through grasslands and tropical forests lead to this massive fall in land. But, the best part is that one hardly expects this drop until they reach Mini World’s End, which is like a preamble to World’s End.

Both these places offer unparalleled views of the lush green cover below, but my personal favorite is when the clouds float in between. And this happens when there is a slight drizzle in this tropical terrain. Both these places inside Sri Lanka’s Horton Plains National Park make you feel that you are truly in heaven.

The trek that leads to both these large drops is also quite a sight as it meanders through grasslands, ponds, waterfalls and tropical forests. Overall, a tropical trek to World’s End is definitely a must-do activity in Sri Lanka if you wish to enjoy paradise in its most beautiful form!!
