1. Dothalugala


    One of the great places to stay if you visit this part of Knuckles. There is a nice small dormitory hidden in the forest and the camp site is located at the edge of a mountain slope with nice, scenic backdrop. There is also a nice natural pool with a small waterfall. These are located about 2km from the Knuckles Conservation Center at Deanston. You can take public transport up to the conservation center (Hunnasgiriya-Loolwatta bus). It is also possible to drive an ordinary car up to the conservation center. A 4WD can make it all the way up to the dormitory. Both dormitory and camp site can accommodate about 10-12 people in each. They are just 100m apart. Just as any other forest department facility, you get the service of a cook if you reserve the dormitory. If you are planning to do camping in the rainy season and afraid of leach bites better be prepared. (Picture Above) I like knuckles camp site because it is located in a unique location and have all the camping facilities needed. Most of All it features 2 Toilets 1 is on the camp site and the other one around 750M away next to Dothalugala Cabin. Also it has pure water source which is drinkable unlike Horton plains. When we camped there the temperature was 13 Celsius at night and 17 Celsius during the daytime.

    Please make sure to carry enough kerosene oil and lanterns, because you are entirely depending on it and there is no electricity available for nearly 2.5KM.

  4. Horton Plains 

    Horton Plains National Park is a national park in Sri Lanka's central highlands that was established in 1988. It is 2,100-2,300 m (6,900-7,500 ft) above sea level and includes montane grassland and cloud forest. It is rich in biodiversity, with many species that are endemic to the area. It is also a popular tourist destination, located 8 kilometers (5.0 miles) from Ohiya, 6 kilometers (3.7 miles) from the world-renowned Ohiya Gap/Dondra Watch, and 32 kilometers (20 miles) from Nuwara Eliya. The Horton Plains are the headwaters of three major Sri Lankan rivers, the Mahaweli, Kelani, and Walawe. In Sinhala the plains are known as Maha Eliya Plains (මහ එළිය තැන්න). Stone tools dating back to Balangoda culture have been found here. The plains' vegetation is grasslands interspersed with montane forest and includes many endemic woody plants. Large herds of Sri Lankan sambar deer feature as typical mammals and the park is also an Important Bird Area with many species not only endemic to Sri Lanka but restricted to the Horton Plains. Forest dieback is one of the major threats to the park and some studies suggest that it is caused by a natural phenomenon. The sheer precipice of World's End and Baker's Falls are among the tourist attractions of the park.
