places to visit in Horton Plains National Park

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.
