Knuckles Mountain Range, Matale

4.8
Take a hike through the rich forest and jungle at Knuckles Mountain Range, enjoying spectacular views of verdant mountains. Explore pockets of cloud forest here, home to a variety of endemic plant and animal life. Enjoy spotting a host of wildlife, including many exciting species of bird (bring binoculars if you can). Note that when hiking, you should be prepared for leeches, especially after heavy rainfall: wear leech socks and shorts so you can easily flick them off your legs, and certainly some sturdy footwear.

Where to stay in Matale

You'll find some fairly standard guesthouses and small hotels in Matale's main urban area, never straying very far from the station and the parks of the city center. Alternatively, explore out of town to the north, east, or south for a host of other more characterful accommodations that show off the fruits of the area, including campgrounds, ecolodges, and farmstays. For a much greater choice of places to stay, look in Kandy, one hour to the south.
