THE ADVENTURE

Hike, Cycle & Kayak through Knuckles mountain range. The dense forest of the knuckles mountain range is surrounded by 34 mystical mountains that range from 900 to 2,000 metres. You will explore some of the country's most beautiful, lesser trodden trails that give you a different side to Sri Lanka. Cascading waterfalls in every clearing, quaint villages hidden amid the mountains, an abundance of tiered rice fields as well as a varied and colourful wildlife. The range covers 234-square-kilometre and heroes the best of what Sri Lanka has to offer.

The purpose element of the trip is focused on the Knuckles forest, important to Sri Lanka in many respects. It harbours rich floral and faunal diversity; it is occupied by several endangered species and it is an important watershed and catchment area for more than 500 streams. The Knuckles is now designated as a UNESCO Heritage Site and is a protected reserve. The forest department has been mainly focussing on preventing further degradation to the forests. However massive reforestation projects are needed as well to restore and enhance its watershed services, micro-climate regulation and carbon sequestration. On our trip, in a small way, we will try to contribute to the forest departments efforts.
