Don’t you wish that hiking could be an everyday thing?. For some of us it is and we’d love to share this joy with you. Come share in our adventure and experience a feeling of being on top of the world.

We have the perfect location ready and waiting for you. The beautiful and majestic Knuckles mountain range. Often cloaked in thick layers of cloud, this miracle of nature houses more than 34 percent of Sri Lanka's endemic trees, shrubs, and herbs and was declared a world heritage site by UNESCO in 2010. The range comprises nine peaks over 1200 meters (4000 ft) in height. Although the country's forestry department has various reforestation projects up and running, The cultivation of cardamom on a large scale in the montane forests is a major threat to the fragile forest ecosystem.

For years we have heard stories of people conquering mountains. You no longer have to sit back and listen to the tales of others adventures. Take some time off for yourself. For a small sacrifice of one day out of hundreds, you can experience the magic of nature to carry inside your heart for days to come.

You will not regret it. Nowadays It’s hard to find things that will only need time from you and in return give you something priceless. The 17 km hike has been designed to satisfy your yearning for adventure. Take a look at the details given below. Come with your friends, family or work colleagues. Don’t be afraid to even come alone. This is for you. Make a choice today. As the famous quote by Werner Herzog says “The world reveals itself to those who travel on foot.
