Knuckles Mountain Range is a conservation area that stretches 155 square kilometers, just one hour south of Kandy. Located right in the heart of Sri Lanka, the area is formed of an impressive array of forests, endemic flora and fauna and breathtaking mountain scenery. Named after its uncanny likeness to human knuckles, the Knuckles Mountain Range is a gorgeous UNESCO World Heritage Site and a popular spot for hikers. Rapid Adventures provides the the perfect opportunity at Knuckles to those who love to hike, mountain bike or explore local villages and discover waterfalls. Also within the range are endemic species such as the marbled cliff ford – nannophrys mamorata and the ceretphora tennenti lizard, which are only found in this area. There is also a wide range of mammals found amongst the forests including elephants, giant squirrels and occasionally leopards.
