KNUCKLES WORLD HERITAGE WILDERNESS AREAThis is a unique area which provided a habitat for many forms of life which are endemic to this mountain range. This very scenic Forest Reserve with its high cliffs and ridges is approximately 21,000 hectares in extent and is under the purview of the Forest Department. The area is threatened by the plantation of Cardamoms as well by encroachments. Knuckles is a good locality to see raptors as well as forest birds. There are many motorable roads that the birder can use. The one which can be recommended for observation of birds in particular is the road from “Loolwatta” passing “Corbett’s Gap” to an ancient village called “Meemure”. The bungalow managed by the Forest Department as well as a few privately owned bungalows are available for over night accommodation.
