Baker’s Falls - Horton Plains, Sri Lanka

Horton Plains National Park is one of the most beautiful spots in the central highlands of Sri Lanka. It offers a diverse landscape in a short zone when compared to the tropical forests and dense vegetation around. In my mind, it looks very similar to the landscape of Cherrapunji in Meghalaya, India. The barren landscape is interspersed with fast streams, mighty waterfalls and brilliant drops.

It is here in this national park that one can see the pristine Baker’s waterfall that is set amidst dense green forests. The climb and descent to the waterfall is steep and tough and can get slippery in rain, but the waterfall views are totally worth the exercise.

There are lovely view points created for the tourist from where the tourist can gaze at the waterfall for hours. These view points are also great spots for photography. But the best view point is the one that is closest to the waterfall. I am sure that this spot would offer a brilliant shower during the rainy season.
