The KNUCKLES Forest, which covers an area of about 160sqkm, falls within the Kandy and Matale districts. One of the main aspects, of this region is its unique landscape and the scenic beauty. It is without doubt, the most scenic part of the Highlands of Sri Lanka containing some of the most rugged, spectacular and breath taking mountain scenery in the island. Another unique feature in this range is that it represents almost all major climatic zones in Sri Lanka. This range undoubtedly will arouse the interest of any nature enthusiast and amaze any botanist or researcher.

This wonderful tour will take one through almost all forest types in Sri Lanka. If one were to start from Illukkumbura the lowest point, which at only 250ft is covered by the Dry Zone Forest and travel up to Riverston at 4000ft, which area is covered by the Pygmy Forest (top most segment of the montane forest), one will traverse Dry Zone Forest, Wet Zone Forest, Dry Pathana, Montane Forest and end up with Pygmy Forest. What is amazing about this tour is, all these can be encountered within half an hours drive. Separate short hikes into each forest type would be an unforgettable experience. A walk through the PitawalaPathana, the largest Dry Pathana planes in the island and look down the precipice – a sheer drop of about 1500ft – at the Puwakpitiya valley below, would be another fascinating part of the journey.
