World's End is located within the Horton Plains National Park in Nuwara Eliya, Sri Lanka. It is a sheer cliff, with a drop of about 4,000 feet (1,200 m).[1] It is one of the most visited parts of the Park, and a key tourist attraction in the Nuwara Eliya District and the country at large.[2][3]

1 km away from the main cliff is a smaller cliff with a 1,000 feet (300 m) drop, colloquially known as Mini World's End.[4] The Indian Ocean, 81 km to the south, can be observed on clear days.[4]
