Montane grassland and cloud forest.

Horton Plains National Park  is a national park in the central highlands of Sri Lanka that was designated in 1988. It is located at an elevation of 2,100–2,300 m and encompasses montane grassland and cloud forest. It is rich in biodiversity and many species found here are endemic to the region. It is also a popular tourist destination in Nuwara Eliya.

The Horton Plains are the headwaters of three major Sri Lankan rivers, the Mahaweli, Kelani, and Walawe. The plains’ vegetation is grasslands interspersed with montane forest and includes many endemic woody plants. Large herds of Sri Lankan sambar deer feature as typical mammals and the park is also an Important Bird Area with many species not only endemic to Sri Lanka but restricted to the Horton Plains. 

The vegetation of the park is classified into two distinctive groups, 2,000 ha of wet patna and 1,160 ha of subtropical montane evergreen forests. Nearly 750 species of plants belonging to 20 families have been recorded from the park.
