Knuckles Range Guides

I will be visiting Sri Lanka at the end of April and was interested in visiting Knuckles Range for a day trek. I wondered if anyone knows a good 'reasonably' priced guide they could recommend. So far the prices I have seen, $60 per person per day, seem pretty expensive.

Any help is much appreciated!

Hi Smashingp

Although I've no personal experience of them, I've had good feedback from people who have stayed at this place in the Knuckles .. and I see they also arrange treks. It's a modestly priced place and I would think they could well be reasonably competitive on price for a Knuckles day trek. Might be worth an enquiry at least...

One of my best friends in Sri Lanka is a guide who often takes people into the Knuckles. His name is Saminda and he is based in Kandy. I have done a one day visit with him and he is very knowledgeable - it is a stunning area. He can also arrange longer visits including visiting the Veddha people. You can check his web site at www.comevisitsrilanka.shutterfly.com or send him an email to samnuwan2003@hotmail.com. I would hiope he could give you a better price for the trip. One way to keep the cost down is to go by 3 wheeler. we did this and it was good fun, though only for one or two people of course.
