The Knuckles Mountain Range is a vast swathe of mountainous land to the northeast of Kandy. Its name was derived from British who thought the peaks and series of folds resembled the knuckles of a clenched fist. It’s a striking region to explore on foot, with an incredible biodiversity and range of vegetation. This is ideal for trekkers as the terrain ranges from riverine to montane forests, from savannah grasslands to semi evergreen woodlands. Our full day trek starts around 8.30am and finishes at 4.30pm. During the guided trek you will navigate through these varying landscapes and will make your way to Corbett’s Gap, one of the most beautiful locations in the area, as the mountains here are surrounded in pygmy forest. You will also get to visit Meemure, an ancient isolated village deep within the Knuckles Range. A packed lunch and water is included in this trek.
Please note we also offer an easier half day option, which finishes before lunch.
