Route 15 daagse rondreis Highlands of Sri Lanka
Quiet trails lead up verdant mountainsides, passing through dense forests. The distinctive call of monkeys and the roaring of waterfalls punctuate the stillness between the remote villages in the hill country, not another walking boot or rucksack in sight. Acclimatisation begins in Sigiriya with a visit to Lion Rock, quintessential to any Sri Lanka adventure. From here the trekking begins in earnest, through the untouched World Heritage conservation area of the Knuckles Mountain Range, past rice paddies and brushing the vibrant, emerald-green tea plantations of Dickoya. After this, the drama of the 1000m drop at World’s End will leave you awe-struck, and the summit of sacred Adam’s Peak (2243m) offers a challenge.
