Absolutely amazing, very hard but well worth the effort. We bought tickets as the the sun was rising at 7am. Which meant we were able to enjoy the view from worlds end of the mountains and towns around the area, before the clouds block the view.

Stunning scenery. Long hike and not one single animal. Crowded. You might see animals if you keep away from groups of chinese tourists as they are very noisy.

When you mention World's end, everyone will tell you that you have to go early there. And that's really true! There are few reasons for that. First of all, there will be really lot of tourists interested to visit the place, so it can, easily, become overcrowded. Other important reason is that, in the mid afternoon, it can be very... More

Got to the park at 630am and the ticketing system leaves a lot to be desired , very chaotic & expensive. However once you get in , the park is beautiful, the walk is quite nice and the views from both worlds end and little worlds end are very cool and dramatic. Be sure to get there before 9/10am before... More

I visited world's end in 1998 when I worked as an expat in Sri Lanka. I only had to pay the local fee, seen I was resident, but when I saw what visitors have to pay, already then I thought it way over-priced. Now I turned back when I saw the pricing. I personally find it a total rip-off. The... More

The full circular walk is 9k but it is worth it to see the view when the clouds and mist clear. If you start early the mist will clear to allow great photo opportunity.

Left to make our own way around this park on a really cold morning - the views are spectacular. Not an easy walk but worth it.

An early start is required to get to the NP in time to ensure you get to the view point before the alleged mist sets in. There were so many vehicles at the entrance at 6am waiting to get into the NP, my main recommendation would be to try to travel in a group or ask your driver to take... More
