What you can expect

Knuckles is a UNESCO World Heritage site and a mountain range covered in a thick tropical forest. This adventurous hike in Knuckles range starts from a small tea estate village. The whole tour involves visiting 4 cascades of a seven cascade waterfall along the river - 'Kotaganga', with each cascade being a waterfall of about 100ft. The hiking trail is crossed by many small water streams and we will walk along one of these streams, which is Kotaganga, which eventually ends up as a waterfall, where we can go up to the edge of the waterfall. Each edge offers a breathtaking view of the mountain village and surrounding mountain ranges.

Then we will hike further through a plain, in to the thick tropical forest hunting for more cascades of the waterfall. The day will end with a refreshing dip in a water stream flowing with Ice Cold Water and a street food dinner at a road side restaurant.

Are you ready for a day full of adventure and amazing tropical wild life experience?

I am a passionate hiker and I go on hikes and other adventures with like-minded friends in the weekends. We go on one day hikes, two day hikes as well as weekend camping on mountain tops. I can facilitate hiking for wild life photographers, wild life expeditions & simple camping trips, where you will get the true outdoor experience with a lot of adventure. The food will be arranged mostly by a local village house & hence will be fresh, authentic home made meals. Camping meals will be made by myself & the guests are mostly welcome to share the camp cooking experience too. After most hikes you can experience a fresh river bath or an icy cold bath in a natural pool or a natural water stream to refresh yourself. If you are visiting Sri Lanka, you can spend a weekend with me & myfriends to experience, Sri Lankan wild life. The unique geography of Sri Lanka has gifted any traveler with a range of green covered mountains with amazing views and hidden waterfalls. The wilderness in Sri Lankan mountains is so vivid and most of them 2000m above sea level with temperatures ranging from 20-30. If you are a photographer of wild beauties, this is the place to be. Some stories in mountains will give you literally goose bumps. Some mountains will hold legacies of the Rawana Story, & some stories equally spooky. Most hikes to these misty mountains covered in green are through thick jungles, & some of them will not even have a proper trail. For someone looking for a great bit of adrenaline, hiking in these mountains is simply a great adventure. Camping in most of these mountains will not fail to give the sight of both the sunset & sunrise, and you will wake up with the fresh rays of sun on your face."
