The Knuckles Mountain Range lies in central Sri Lanka, in the Districts of Matale and Kandy. The range takes its name from a series of recumbent folds and peaks in the west of the massif which resemble the knuckles of clenched fist when viewed from certain locations in the Kandy District. Whilst this name was assigned by early British surveyors, the Sinhalese residents have traditionally referred to the area as Dumbara Kanduvetiya meaning Mist-laden Mountain Range. i will pick you up from your hotel at around 6am and you will take an hour and a half’s drive away from Kandy towards the Knuckles region. As you get closer, you’ll notice the scenery starting to change from palm trees, rice fields and tropical foliage to cloud forest, montane forest, and verdant plateaus of pygmy forest. You will be hiking the Corbett’s Gap Viewpoint track, starting at Leopard Rock and finishing up at one of the country’s highest waterfalls. The terrain is fairly smooth and perhaps the most challenging aspect during the rainy season will be slippery tracks and leeches. You’ll wind your way across the grassland area of the Knuckles and in towards the cloud forests as you ascend Leopard Rock, finally reaching a peak.
I have travelled across the world, was looking for a destination different than anywhere i have never been before – Knuckles range certainly delivered.I believe travel needs to serve a purpose – or be a way into understanding an issue.Being a conservationist , i believe we need to look after our earth more than ever.For my experience, I give people a disposable camera and take them around old architecture in the places where we visit. so i am a photographer, ramble,thrill seeker,Tedx organiser,Music Teacher and a mother. To truly experience a country, you need to see it through the eyes of the people who live there.These experiences were better than any souvenir, and the memories will last even longer. I am excited to share them with you.
