The reserve is home to many endemic flora of the country and for fauna the Sri Lankan Sambar deer herds and rare sighting of the mountain leopard is recorded. Horton Plains marks the beginning of 3 large rivers in Sri Lanka – Mahaweli, Kalani and Walawe that feeds water for some of the main agricultural regions in the country.
