Knuckles

Located in the districts of Matale and Kandy in the Central Province of Sri Lanka, the Knuckles Mountain Range has been enthralling nature lovers since time immemorial. The beauty that envelops the lush green vastness of this mountain range is indeed unsurpassed. Its great appeal is heightened by the knuckle shaped peaks that are visible from many locations across the city of Kandy. The name that the locals have given to this enchanting destination is ‘Dumbara Kanduvetiya’ which roughly translates to ‘misty mountain range’.

Enter its magnificent terrains to lose yourself in a glorious cloud forest, that softly embraces the emerald-hued treetops in an eternal embrace. The dream-like beauty of the skies unites with the unspoiled beauty of earth within the majestic mountains, making it a place that is truly extraordinary. Knuckles Range trekking is indeed a rewarding experience as the area is resplendent with glistening waterfalls, rising mountain peaks, and flowery valleys too.

The Mini World’s End is one of the major attractions here that many trekkers love. It is located at the southern end and affords spectacular views of the sprawling mountain range as well as the many small villages that encircle the region.

You will also find an abundance of flora as well as a rich variety of fauna here when you hike. The cool atmosphere makes a trek a truly delightful exercise.
