You may reach knuckles mountain range with different routes. I used the " meemure" road off Hunnasgiriya. This is approximately 200 km from colombo and 6 hours drive ( if you leave colombo as early as 6 am.) Road up to Hunnasgiriya is pretty much in good condition. The road from Hunnasgiriya upto coberts gap is under construction and can... More

Area is full of birds, if you are interseted in birds and animal observation... More

With a local guide, I spent 2 days trekking in Knuckles Range and several types of forests/environment can be observed. It is jut great, you hike away from the city buzz. Take binoculars and water tights bags. You can observe bear monkeys, rhino horn lizards and leopard poo. Guides give leeches repellent and "socks".

Meemure in the Knuckles range has as its landmark the very distinctive Lakegala mountain . It has been one of the most beautiful and most remote villages in Sri Lanka. A recent visit found that the incursions of uncouth local tourists on boozing sprees has spoilt the beauty of the place .Littering , broken bottles, uncouth behaviour - and the... More

We did a 2-day trek, including one in Knuckles Montain. The scenery is beautiful, you feel alone in the world. The trek is a little support but is fairly good, with alternating areas of sun and shade, and of climbs and downhill. We recommend taking a guide (no, you can not find those locations). Anil Weerakoon of srilankaecotrekking is an... More

Definitely worth a visit and a good alternative the Hill Country. Stay at the Madulkelle Eco Lodge for beautiful views, treks, and relaxation.
