Çfarë do të bësh

Your guide will pick you up from your hotel at around 6.30am and you will take an hour and a half’s drive away from Kandy towards the Knuckles region.

As you get closer, you’ll notice the scenery starting to change from palm trees, rice fields and tropical foliage to cloud forest, mountain forest, and verdant plateaus of pygmy forest. You will be accompanied on your trek by a guide who knows the area intimately as well as one or two assistants (depending on your group size) who will serve as porters for the hike. The terrain is fairly smooth and perhaps the most challenging aspect during the rainy season will be slippery tracks and leeches.

You’ll wind your way across the grassland area of the Knuckles and in towards the cloud forests, finally reaching a plateau that offers stunning panoramic vistas across the forest. then continue on to a hidden waterfall where it is possible to bathe in the crystal clear slightly chilly water.
Other things to note
The trek is 8km, however, it can be lengthened or shortened to suit your preferences.

We had a superb time at the trek despite being sunburnt at the end. (pro tip: apply/carry a lot of sunblock and also an extra pair of clothes if you want to take a dip in the waterfall). The trek started at the base of a quaint town and all the way upto a secluded waterfall. Beautiful flora and fauna and views! Our host, Amila, was perfect. He was fun to make conversations with and had immense knowledge about the place from the birds, plants, animals. He brought us snacks and water and made sure he matched our pace and also went out of the way to show us interesting things about the place. He even knew which poop was of which animal. As there are a lot of leeches in the area, he came well prepared for the prevention of a leech bite and even a cure for leech bite. The lunch that was provided was better than any other local meal we had. Couldn’t have asked for a better day. Completely recommend this experience!!

Amila is THE person you want to take this hike with. Full of respect for the forest and the environment, he is reverent of his surroundings, takes the time to explain the flora and the fauna around you. A boy scout in his younger years, his passion for the environment has only grown. He also takes time to pick up any rubbish/ waste he sees along the path. With Amila, you really feel taken care of. At the beginning I was out of breath and kept having to stop. He asked a few questions and understood that my lungs were not used to the air and that I hadn't had a proper breakfast in the morni g. He made us stop after a whe and asked that I eat some sweet biscuits and bananas he had brought along he gave me enough time to acclimatise and then I felt much much better. The trek was wonderful, gruelling at times, but you are 100% assured of your safety with Amila. He is well prepped.The big Big bonus at the end? The wonderful authentic Sri Lankan lunch he takes you to at the end. I felt like Sri Lankan royalty eating the 6 dishes prepared by locals! I recommend this experience a 1000 times over! Great value for money!

Knuckles range is very hard terrain and recommend this to anyone who comes to SriLanka. However, I cannot recommend using Amila. Firstly he didn’t turn up and warn in advance of it. He sent another person name Chani, who didn’t speak English, was not very knowledgeable of the terrain or it’s tracks. Didn’t explain the trek and what to expect at the beginning of the trip. Parts of the trek required some tough climbing and at times crawling. It became a hike only, with very little learnings on Knuckles. The homestead lunch was lovely and the host family prepared wonderful curries. Perhaps Amila is an expert guide but we did not get that experience and can not recommend him as a result.

My favorite hike in Sri Lanka so far. Highly recommend. I had Chane as a guide, not Amila. He was knowledgeable, engaged, fluent in English (basically), and a fun companion. We saw a lot in a short time: steep hills, valleys, jungle, vast open spaces, waterfalls, etc. Chane had me smelling/tasting wild herbs and spices, too. He even conjured up a travel partner in the form of a devoted stray dog. A magical day, exactly what you want. One word of advice: though my day lasted exactly as long as advertised, I would’ve liked an hour or two more on the trails. It’s a hearty hike, so I wasn’t disappointed. Just be aware that you’re only hiking for about half the allotted time.

I took a trek with my friends for the first time.. And I couldn't have asked for a better local host who not only was an expert but was prepared (with Snacks) and personally caring for our every need. He took us through the beatiful path at a pace that matched our time as well as stamina and made sure we took necessary breaks. He wasn't hesitant in offering help in every step of the way. He is very knowledgeable and was showing us new vegetation and plants throughout the route. The food that we had after trek was also amazing. All in all a wonderful experience with our amazing expert host Amila. P.S. He will tell u all the right places to pick sweet berries on your way.
