  • Nature Trails and Hikes at Knuckles by Dulshan from Knuckles. Time duration is about 1 hour to do the hiking. One of the best nature trails in Sri Lank. 
  • We decided to make a Trek out of this mountain range. Pity about the weather that wasn't the greatest. We made a challenging course of about 18 km walk but can choose what kind of Hiking do, so, go for it! Beautiful waterfall, buy Dettol for leeches that may be there. We were with but we sprinkled of Dettol and then peeling off right away. No danger ... Top! Vote 10!
