Horton Plains National Park

We visited Horton Plains National Park from Ella and it was a good two and a half hour drive from there.
A permit to enter the park cost us Rs. 4,962.16 which was expensive in my opinion, especially as it was just me and my husband and our driver.
The shortest route to walk around the park takes around 3-4 hours, depending on your pace and the number of sights you stop to look at. There is a small Visitor Centre at the entrance to the park where you can briefly stop to take a look and use the bathroom there.
Highlights of the park are World's End for great and sometimes misty views, Mini World's End for the same and Baker's Falls. Many species of animals and birds inhabit the park, although I did not see any of them while I was there.
The park is picturesque with lots of rolling hills and grasslands and is worth a visit if you like walking/hiking. Some sections are only for the able-bodied though, due to rocky terrain, steep hills and lack of pathways.
The park is open from 5am until 6.30pm daily.
