Located off Kandy, in the northern end of Central Highlands of Sri Lanka, the Knuckles range is one of the most unique nature attractions in the island.
A World heritage Conservation Area with a wide array of endemic fauna and flora, it is still very much an untouched zone of astoundingly rich biodiversity. With varied terrain of grasslands, rugged mountain peaks interspersed with streams and cascading waterfalls it is an 18512 hectares of paradise for trekkers and nature lovers alike. The Knuckles mountain range comprises 34 peaks between1900 meters to 900 meters in height. The five high peaks of the range looks similar to a clenched fist from a distance, hence its name. The popular hiking trails lead to a drop called ‘mini world’s end’; the high vantage point of ‘Corbett’s gap’, to the ‘Nitro’ and Augallena caves, and you can explore the rural village of Meemure along the way.
