Hike in the Knuckles

Sum up

The Knuckles Mountain Range, so named because of its resemblance to the knuckles of a clenched fist, is wonderful walking country. The best walking months are mid-February to April and June to August and Red Dot offers the choice of a half day (8 kms) or full day (18 kms) trek.

Duration: 4 hours

Best Time: February to August

Additional Information

This rugged 235 sq kilometre range is made up of mountain peaks, cascading waterfalls, simple villages nestled into the slopes, terraced rice fields and a sense of discovering nature at its most enchanting.

Whatever your hiking experience, it remains compulsory for you to have a guide in this protected reserve, a UNESCO world heritage site, and apart from the danger of losing your way failure to do so could bring problems with the authorities. Our trekker, an outdoors enthusiast and naturalist, will point out interesting aspects of the walk or just allow you to become lost in your own thoughts – whatever you tell him you prefer.

As Sri Lanka’s popularity grows, here remains a mystical region, still off-the-beaten track, with breathtaking views and a sense of remoteness that will appeal to experienced and novice hikers alike.
