This lake was fashioned under orders of British Governor Sir William Gregory in 1873. A boat yard now allows visitors to go boating and rowing. And it makes beauty to Nuwara Eliya town.
The most stunning place in the Horton Plains is the World's End, where the southern Horton Plains suddenly ends, and drops off to nearly 700 Metres, which is an awesome sight indeed. Worlds End means the place which has highest gap in Sri Lanka.
This place is situated at the border of Nuwaraeliya, Badulla and Rathnapura districts. There has two worlds ends one of the small worlds end and other one is big worlds end.
The big worlds end is higher than other gaps. When you come the way of Worlds End you met two ways. One of way goes to Bakers Fall and Plain way is go to worlds end.
