Walking to World's End

Most of Sri Lanka is tropical jungle, a bit like the Malay Peninsula, but Nuwara Eliya (aka Little England or Little Scotland) and surrounds could be twinned with Tasmania. We left the tea plantations behind to climb a bit higher to Horton Plains National Park so that we could walk to the end of the world.
On the circuit walk, Mini World's End provides a practice run. Two out of three visits are said to be disappointingly misty, but we luckily had perfect conditions.
And then, half an hour later it is the real thing. I was too scared to get close to the edge.
On a clear day you can supposedly see to the sea. Despite the perfect blue skies, the distance was a bit too hazy to be able to confirm this.
The walk was about 9km in total, with varied scenery and not at all difficult.
At around 6km it was getting quite warm, so Baker Falls was a welcome respite.
