Furthermore, Udawalawe is an important bird area with a wide range such as aquatic, birds of prey, and land birds in abundance.

Trek in the Knuckles Mountain Range

Trek in the Knuckles Mountain Range

When one thinks of travelling in Sri Lanka, the first thing that comes to mind is its beaches.But what’s less well-known is Sri Lanka’s amazing hill country. Mostly concentrated in the Central Province, the higher elevations of the island provide a very different environment to the rest of the country. We’re not referring to Kandy or Nuwara Eliya or the usual tourist hotspots that people run to, to escape the summer heat, but country that is significantly hillier. There are plenty of hiking trails for the casual traveller. Places like Horton Plains and Ella offer a great experience for everyone without being too physically strenuous. But if you like your trails a bit tougher, more exotic, and a lot less crowded, then the Knuckles range of mountains spanning the districts of Kandy and Matale is probably the best place you could find. So called because the folds and peaks look like the knuckles of a closed fist, the mountain range is largely untouched and very beautiful.
