Staying at our camp and reconnect with nature is the best way to relax, unwind and be active at the same. Further you have the perfect starting point and access to everything worth seeing in the Knuckles Mountain Range.
The camp itself has a rustic look which makes it so special and you can make yourself comfortable in our cabins.
The main log cabin forms the center of our camp. It includes the kitchen, a bar and a rustic fireplace. From there small paths lead to the cabin and social areas. The paths are lined up with small petroleum lamps that show the way. One path leads through the dense vegetation and opens surprisingly up to our view point. Another highlight in our camp - the view is overwhelming.
There are countless colorful flowers and interesting plants scattered all over the camp area, and many colorful and unique birds are hidden between the leaves.
Our guides are well trained and are looking forward to introducing you to the diversity of this region.
Our focus is on bringing nature closer to you and perhaps showing you things that you have never seen before, even though they were always there.

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. The entire area is characterised by its striking landscapes often robed in thick layers of cloud but in addition to its aesthetic value the range is of great scientific interest. It is a climatic microcosm of the rest of Sri Lanka. The conditions of all the climatic zones in the country are exhibited in the massif. At higher elevations there is a series of isolated cloud forests, harbouring a variety of flora and fauna, some of which cannot be found anywhere else in the world. Although the range constitutes approximately 0.03% of the island’s total area it is home to a significantly higher proportion of the country’s biodiversity.
The Knuckles Mountain Range is a major eco-tourism venue of Sri Lanka and has been declared a conservation area, now known as the KNUCKLES NATIONAL HERITAGE AND WILDERNESS AREA.
