Horton Plains cloud forest, Sri Lanka Throughout the open plains of Horton Plains, Sri Lanka, you will find pockets of forest like these. They are cloud forests at an altitude of 2,100 - 2,300 metres high. Both the vegetation and its birds and monkeys are special as they are largely endemic.

  1. I loved Horton Plains - not as spectacular as Yala, but for a must for any nature tour of Sri Lanka! Posted 9 days ago
    1. I agree, a beautiful environment. The only downside was that we saw almost no wildlife. Posted 9 days ago
  2. Really - bummer. We didn't see a whole lot for awhile, but then suddenly a mixed feeding flock of birds passed through and I saw 5 life birds within a minute or two! Posted 8 days ago
    1. Nice, good for you! Posted 8 days ago
