Beautiful silver mist and refreshing gushes of cold wind will hug you from all sides as you go through this flourishing land that is home to an abundance of flora and fauna. The hike starts from the Wildlife Office of Horton Plains and is about 6km long until the summit of The Kirigalpotta Mountain, the second-highest mountain in Sri Lanka at 2,388 m above sea level. The tour is roughly 8 hours. Bring along your cameras and binoculars because Horton Plains is truly a sight worth capturing and keeping.
