Knuckles Mountain Range

The Knuckles Mountain Range is the perfect destination for every traveler.  For nature and wildlife enthusiasts it offers a journey through thick forests and grasslands that are home to an abundance of flora and fauna. For those seeking a rush of adrenaline, opportunities to hike, cycle and hunt waterfalls are endless. The range is also dotted with beautiful tea plantations, paddy fields and Kandyan home gardens that offer a glimpse of both the culture and the biodiversity of the Sri Lankan highlands. Declared as a National Heritage and Wilderness area, the Knuckles gets its name due to its appearance that resembles a set of knuckles in a closed fist.
