then you will be mesmerized with the surroundings.

2. Do NOT Hesitate to Take a Photo of this Tree

Tell you frankly, I have my own explanation for the landscape of Horton Plain. There are particular reasons for this type of Plain Landscape.

I do not want to explain my personal philosophy behind this Plain landscape but you find a lot of short trees like in the below.


If you study, these types of trees can be found in deserts or closer to a desert or high radiation areas. This is according to my research, I may be wrong.!!!! 🙂


Anyway, Do not hesitate to take photos of this tree as It is one of the landmarks of Horton Plain.

3. Enjoy the View of Belihul Oya River Tributaries

The uppermost section of the famous Belihul Oya running under the Red Bridge. You can watch the uppermost section of the famous Belihul Oya river when you come to the Red Bridge section. This is one of the major tributaries of River Walawe which flows into the sea at Ambalantota.


You would be able to see this uppermost section of the Belihul Oya river at different places when you hiking toward Baker’s Falls in Horton Plain.

It has its own beautify.

Gaze this river and listen to the sound of the river. I guess this uppermost section of the famous Belihul Oya creates the Baker’s Falls in Horton Plain.

It would great if somebody can somebody confirm this?

Do NOT rush. Enjoy nature


4. It is Your Duty to Keep the Place Clean

We are all humans and we carry different values. Some of our own kind people, never bother to follow the simple guidelines of Horton Plain.

You can NOT take polythene or You can NOT drop polythene where ever you want.


Tharu was trying to clean the Place. Good Job Bro

It is hazardous for Nature and the wild animals living in Horton Plain therefore Do not hesitate to clean or pick polythene and dump into the proper places, if you find them somewhere.

My friend, Tharidu, Software Engineer, did not hesitate to clean a few places of Horton Plain. There a few places that you could put your garbage. This garbage vessel is very high, hence wild animals can not peep and eat these.


You can dump polythene into these bins. There is a process to clean or pick this garbage. Still, There are 2 Legs Animals among us


 5. Do NOT Ignore These Foreigners or Locals

You meet a lot of Foreigners or Local crowds face to face as they have taken the wrong direction.

From the distance, you can see, they are breathless or panting 🙂 as they have worked more than 6-7 km and would have climbed a couple of hills 🙂


Usually, they just want to finish the trail.

When they meet you, do not hesitate to smile with them or some encouraging word such “Oh you have come to end of the trail” or “Do not worry, it is just a plain work” or “There are NO hills climbing, you can finish it fast” 🙂

A lot of Foreigners asked me several times this “How many km to finish the trail” and “Are there any more hills to climb” 🙂


Give a simple smile and a few happy words. It will help them move forward.

Therefore, Do not take to wrong path or direction when you visit Baker’s Falls in Horton Plain again.
