Some of us managed to raise ourselves before 5:00 am this morning to get an early start on the 10km Horton Plains walk to World’s End and Baker Falls. Unfortunately quite a few other tourists had the same idea, including several groups of Chinese who made so much noise taking photos of themselves and racing along the track that they ruined everyone’s chances of seeing wildlife.
Nevertheless we did manage to catch a beautiful view of Adam’s Peak
And some Sambhur Deer, a chameleon, a family of Purple Faced Leaf Monkeys and a bumble bee the size of a small mouse.
The views from the top of the mountains were fabulous. Adam’s Peak lookout has a 1,200 metre drop and no guard rails to protect us from our own stupidity!
