Baker's Fall is a famous waterfall named after Sir Samuel Baker, who was a renowned explorer. It is in Horton Plains National Park (2000 metres above sea level), Sri Lanka. The Fall is about 66 feet high and is on a tributary of the BelihulOya. After one's hike to Big World's End (a cliff in the national park which offers expansive views over a plateau that drops almost 880 meters vertically down) and Little World's End (300-meter landscape drop), the sound of gushing water acts as an invitation to the hikers.
Surrounded by fern bushes, the waterfall is an audio and visual delight because of the rumbling water and the sound of birds chirping. After a 9.5 kilometre walk in Horton's plain, the fall is an ideal and refreshing place to stopover, relax peacefully and take some memorable clicks from the viewing platform at the falls.
