Your guide will pick you up from your hotel at around 6.30am 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, mountain forest, and verdant plateaus of pygmy forest. You will be accompanied on your trek by a guide who knows the area intimately as well as one or two assistants (depending on your group size) who will serve as porters for the hike. 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, finally reaching a plateau that offers stunning panoramic vistas across the forest. then continue on to a hidden waterfall where it is possible to bathe in the crystal clear slightly chilly water.
