"Alpine grassland is worth a visit. Need to hurry early in the morning, we departed from Nuwara Eliya Hotel at 5 o'clock, after a 1.5-hour winding road, finally arrived at the ticket booth. The temperature in the morning is very low, about 5-6 degrees, the wind is also very strong, the fog is also very big, but the scenery along the way is beautiful, and I watched a very beautiful sunrise. Tickets are very expensive, you have to buy a driver and parking fees, which add up to about 6000 rupees. But compared to other scenic spots, I think it's worth it, because the scenery is really good, and I saw wild deer. All the way to the jungle and mountain road, and then to the beautiful grassland, you must have a high degree of sun protection. Because when the sun comes out, it can peel off directly in the sun. I didn't know it, so I didn't apply anything and just tanned it. Around the scenic spot, you can see the "End of the Small World" and the "End of the World" as well as a small waterfall. But I think the scenery along the way is much better than the scenic spots. There is no food in the scenic spot, only a canteen at the entrance of the scenic spot selling drinks and biscuits. It is recommended to bring your own dry food, and go to the toilet at the entrance of the scenic spot (location of the parking lot), because it is difficult to find a toilet inside."
