Horton Plains

A UNESCO World Heritage Site

Take a walk in the highlands of Sri Lanka's Hill Country, surrounded by magnificent vistas and plenty of wildlife

When you’re up in Sri Lanka’s Hill Country the weather is perfect to get out and stretch your legs with a good walk - and there is no place more picturesque for this than Horton Plains, a high region (at an altitude of over 2000 metres) of mountainous grasslands and cloud forests with some lovely walking trails and magnificent views. Walks here can be done as day trips from Nuwara Eliya and nearby hotels such as Warwick Gardens.

Horton Plains is protected as a UNESCO World Heritage site, and as with everywhere in Sri Lanka there is plenty of wildlife to keep you company on your wanders. Make sure you keep an eye out for herds of sambar deer.
