Off The Guidebooks Hike to Riverston


Hike through remote villages and untouched rural Sri Lanka into the Knuckles Mountain Range, accompanied with an expert local guide.

Hiking to Riverston, known for its beautiful vistas of Sri Lankan Hill Country. Your hike starts from the remote Gammaduwa village. We start climbing uphill through pine forests and get onto the only trail to the extremely remote Kargastene village. This remote village is completely isolated and supports only a small farming family.

From here, the scenery completely changes and we hike across a large grass land for a few kilometres before heading back into the jungle. Our route crosses small reservoirs and streams before we reach the village of Puwakpitiya where we stop for lunch (A lunch that you can help cook) A nearby waterfall is a great place to go for a small swim before the next stretch of our arduous journey. Your return transfer can meet you here. There is also the beautiful Sera falls to be visited en route on your return journey.
