Trekking & hiking
Trekking and hiking are excellent ways to not only explore a country but also gain an insight into her people‚ their traditions and beliefs. The hill country offers some of the best terrain and scenery as trails wing through dense forests‚ up steep mountains‚ past flowing waterfalls‚ between fields of tea and through clear rivers that offer a cooling dip. In addition‚ the paths within the Cultural Triangle offer hikers a chance to abandon the beaten track and discover little-known temples‚ uninhabited jungle and archaeological remains.

Horton Plains‚ at an altitude of 2‚134m‚ has a refreshing climate and a variety of walks through unusual high-altitude vegetation. The trek past Baker's Fall to the dizzying 880m escarpment of World's End is memorable‚ and scaling the holy mountain of Adam's Peak (Sri Pada) is a physical and spiritual experience. The Knuckles Mountain Range is a delight as scenic trails wind through five major forest formations offering hikers the unique opportunity to see a variety of rare and endemic flora and fauna. Nature lovers will also enjoy the Sinharaja Forest Reserve whose biodiversity makes it one of Sri Lanka's seven UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
