Knuckles Mountains Sri Lanka

With its wildlife reserves and areas of biodiversity, the Knuckles Mountain Range is perhaps the most significant of Sri Lanka’s many prized eco-landscapes.
So named because it resembles a clenched fist, it also embodies a climatic microcosm that includes cloud forests that support a variety of flora and fauna unique to Sri Lanka.
It is one of the three best-know features of the renowned central highlands, the other two being the Peak Wilderness Sanctuary and Horton Plains.
Three main rivers—the Hulu Ganga, the Heen Ganga and the Kalu Ganga—create some breathtaking waterfalls as they flow from the Knuckles into ancient but still-used irrigation systems.
