Exciting Mountain Adventures In Sri Lanka | Asian Island
Trek & Hike the Mountains

Mountains

Coming to Sri Lanka for the mountains, you will probably be looking for the pureness of clean, fresh air, hikes to peaks, and treks including rock climbing. Well, you can do all that and more!
In different locations you can walk trails, camp under the stars, sleep in a temple, bathe in a river, enjoy a traditional Sri Lankan dinner, and ride a tuk tuk.

The best locations are found in Sri Lanka’s heartland. Here are but a few to choose from:
Knuckles Mountains Range
A UNESCO World Heritage Natural Site since 2009, located to the north-east of Kandy, offers spectacular panoramic scenery along with a bio-diversity of endemic species of flora and fauna of global importance that needs to be protected for generations to come, tourism in the area is therefore very much of the eco kind. There will be rice fields, spice gardens, tea plantations, vegetable fields, pine forests, typical, local mountain villages, plateaus, wildlife and bird watching, waterfalls, along the way. Treks to the Knuckles Mountains Range mostly start from Kandy.
