It’s no secret that Sri Lanka’s hill country is a dream destination for hikers, thanks to its variety and stunning scenery. Haputale, Bandarawela, and Ella are stunning regions in Sri Lanka’s hill country, and they make for an excellent home base for exploring the island on foot. Trekking routes in and around the area pass by rainforest remnants, paddy fields, railways and tunnels, tea plantations, mountains, valleys, grassy plains, and waterfalls.
An additional highlight of a hiking or trekking trip to Sri Lanka is the opportunity to cool down in one of the country’s many rivers or waterfalls. Horton Plains National Park, also nearby, is a great place to go hiking in a mystery setting, including forested areas, meadows, and even some high-altitude plants. World’s End, with its 880-meter plummet, and Baker’s Falls, with its breathtaking beauty, are must-sees.
Don’t miss the stunning Knuckles Mountain range if you find yourself in the Kandy area. The area is an astonishing 155 square kilometers in size, and it is home to five different types of forest, several endangered species, and stunning mountain views. The Knuckles mountain range is a trekker’s dream, with dozens of trips that cross crystal-clear rivers, pass by lush woods and waterfalls, wind through tea farms and plantations, and pass by terraced rice fields and bright Kandyan gardens.
