Mountain tops and tea plantations

... park located 30km outside of town. Spending the morning walking around the plains was very special, we went on a 3 hour hike that covered dense Sri Lankan forests, rolling grassland hills and majestic mountain peaks from here we could see almost to the Indian ocean.

Horton Plains National Park is elevated at 2100 meters. It has a montane grassland and cloud forest. End of the world. Here I ...
