Sri Lankan Knuckes Sojourn - Camp & Trek

Are you an outdoor enthusiast? Love the rigors of trekking, but want something uniquely challenging this time? Look no further. We are excited to bring to you an exciting, spanking-new program that will give you a taste of trekking through a rugged, exotic terrain and survival camping.

The Knuckles massif is so-named because of its resemblance to a clenched fist when viewed from certain districts in Kandy. With its dramatic peaks, rolling lush semi-evergreen and riverine forests, this is a haven for avid trekkers – and this itinerary takes you right through its backbone.

This program combines hard-trekking through one of Sri Lanka’s most rugged terrains and along the way, visiting some of its most remote villages  - where stepping into their lifestyles will be like stepping through the annals of another time long-thought forgotten. Venture deep into the wilderness and cross rivers to discover waterfalls. Have lunch at fantastic viewing points, where you’ll be able to see the surrounding rolling green hills. You will also get to explore a few hidden caves, and even get the chance to camp in the cave behind a cascading waterfall – an experience not to be missed!
