A Visit to the Moon Plains
Moon Plains, named for its circular plains that resemble craters on the moon when viewed from above, is a wide valley located a short distance from town and is a relatively new attraction in the Hill Country.
What makes this valley a popular tourist attraction is that it sits amidst some of the tallest mountain ranges and cloud forests in the Central Highlands, offering visitors breath-taking views of the surrounding landscape. A visit to Moon Plains entails a 30-minute jeep ride through carpeted grasslands to a hilltop from which you can witness a 360-degree view of the enveloping countryside. On a clear day, you can observe the peaks of 9 of the 11 tallest mountains in Sri Lanka which cannot be viewed from anywhere else in the country.
