Hiking day in the Knuckles Range
Knuckles Mountain Range

Today's hike includes several picturesque villages, temples, a jungle and tea plantations. Enjoy beautiful scenery as well as scenes of rural Sri Lankan life, including the "line houses" of the tea pickers. Climb to the foot of Knuckles Mountains and find yourself at a natural swimming hole created by waterfalls. Take a break and enjoy a refreshing swim (water temperature: approx. 18°C). You have the option of taking the local bus from here, or you can hike another 4 km through the forest to a modern tea factory, and take public transport back from here. This 18 km hike is rather strenuous and requires good shoes and a hat to protect yourself from the sun.

Restful and relaxing yoga session at the end of the day. Release your fatigue and prepare your body and mind for a good night's sleep! Dinner and overnight at the ecolodge.

I am proud to be from Sri Lanka, a country rich in diversity, a country with many incredible historical sites, lush forests, beautiful mountains, idyllic beaches and majestic flora and fauna. I come from a small mountain town where you can admire this lush nature and breathtaking scenery. My region offers many places off-the-beaten-path for unique experiences. After spending a few years in France, I decided to return to my home country and join the tourism industry in 2012. My passion is to create authentic tours for my clients to explore the island and leave with unforgettable memories of the pearl of the Indian Ocean.
