About the Challenge
Little can rival Sri Lanka’s variety. From rice paddies, high grasslands and emerald-green tea estates, to dense forest and golden tropical beaches, the Island of Serendipity is renowned for its natural beauty, rich wildlife and fascinating culture.
Our trek takes us through the Central Highlands, a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its biodiversity, on little-trodden trails through the plantations and wild forests that blanket the steep, green slopes. We pass tumbling waterfalls and marvel at the colourful tropical birds and butterflies that flit through the lush vegetation. Within the Highlands lies the Knuckles Mountain Range, named for its likeness to a clenched fist; at 1900m, Knuckles Peak is our highest point. The isolated communities of local farmers and tea planters offer an authentic glimpse into everyday life, though you’re more likely to see monkeys or majestic eagles than other trekkers.
On an island dotted with UNESCO World Heritage Sites, we also make time for two of the most renowned - the ancient rock fortress of Sigiriya, and the serene Temple of the Tooth in Kandy, where we finish our trek. All combined, this is an irresistible trek in one of the friendliest countries in the world – you will not want to leave Sri Lanka! Dates & Prices
