Horton’s Plains in itself is almost a 1.5 hour long drive away from Nuwara Eliya and once there, it’s another 9km trek that takes around 2 hours to cover. The plains are said to be remnants of the ancient forests and are covered by wild grasslands, dotted with waterfalls and lakes. Just when we started our trek we came face to face with a huge Sambhar deer, who clearly did not give us a second look while we kept standing there and staring at its magnificence.  We moved further on and again we saw a small bunch of deers prancing across the path.   The trek loops through the gurgling Baker’s Falls and comes to a sudden end at the World’s End. It is said that on clear days, you can almost see till the ocean from there! Though we were not that lucky, but lucky enough to not have clouds obscure most of the view. We walked the rest of the loop to finish our 9km trek in less than 2 hours on empty stomachs and less than 1 hour of sleep! *so proud*
