Kandy, Central Province

This one’s a trek-based experience. We’re in the Central Highlands. Your host will take you through a carefully-planned route, on foot, to absorb the uniqueness of the Knuckles range and habitat.

 

An avid outdoorsman and a naturalist of repute, your host sets the tone for this one. Trekking through Knuckles, you probably won’t see many others along this path. It is untouched, and so it is treasured by scientists and anthropologists from all parts. The biodiversity here is rich and varied. Plus, some of the earliest settlers to this island landmass are said to have inhabited these parts. The importance of this place sets in slowly. There are 40 or so relatively unknown villages amidst these rugged hills and mountains. The terrain here is home to creatures and plant life not found anywhere else on Earth. Many prefer to take in this trek experience between March-April or June-August. The rains come less frequently in these months. Oh, and you can choose from a half day (8km) or full day (18km) trek. The remoteness of this locale and its distinct landscape make this a must-have experience.

 

Put your feet up in the evening once you get back to the hotel. There’ll surely be plenty to talk about after this one-of-a-kind experience.
