    World's End - Sri Lanka

    World's End - Sri Lanka

    One of the attraction of Horton plains is world's end. There are infact two of them. “The small world’s end” and “The big world’s end” they are about 0.8km (1/2mile) apart from each other. From these, one could see the fall to the Tea states down bellow. A merry 1000ft(328m) from the small one and a dramatic 4000ft (1312m) from the big one. From here one could get a fantastic view of the surrounding hills and the mountain ranges wreathed in mists and clouds and on clear days even the Indian ocean which is about 50 miles (81km) to the south is visible.

    Thanks atif for nice pictures....

    here some more.......

    Lohagad - IronFort in INDIA

    Dear Atif, This is not Worlds end in Sri Lanka....I also mistaken. this is Lohagad - IronFort in INDIA. plz change the topic heading.

    thanks.


    With a 2000 year old history and at 3400 ft high, Lohagad one of the magestic forts in the region. The climb to the fort takes you to panoramic vantage points, huge balconies, doors and reminds you how important this place was which was used to defend freedom. Surrounded by lakes on all side the views from the fort are breathtaking specially from vinchu kata (Scorpion's tail).

    Brief Info abt Lohagad Fort: This fort is 10km from Lonavala (100 Kms from Mumbai and 60 Kms from Pune). It belongs to the period of Chattrapati Shivaji's reign and was used for keeping prisoners in the year 1564.

    In 1670, Shivaji Maharaj won this fort and in the year 1751, Gaikwad and Dabhade family were incarcerated in this fort. The entrance to this fort is impressive and is aptly called 'Delhi Gate'. There are three gates one after the other.

    How To Reach: Train or Road: Alight at malavli station which is the next station after lonavala. Lonavala is midway between mumbai and pune. Cross the mumbai pune express highway via overhead bridge and turn walking towards mumbai direction to bhaje village which is approx 2 Kms. From bhaje walk towards lohagad. After a gruelling but scenic trek of about 2 and half hours (7 KMS) you reach the foothills of the fort. The small village there houses couple of small hotels. It can be a pretty hectic trek for 1 day if you dont have your own vehicle. Take plenty of water in summers(Feb to June). Best time to visit is between July and December.
