Start a camp fire and camp the night out underneath the stars surrounded by rugged wilderness. Wildlife sanctuaries such as Wilpattu, Yala or Udawalawe are popular amongst naturalists and nature lovers as their preferred camping destination due to the large populations of Asian elephants, Wild boar, Leopards and sloth bears who call these parks home. When visiting NuwaraEliya in the central hills, one could camp out at “Horton Plains” a UNESCO world heritage site. The plains spans over 56,000 hectares at an elevation of over 2000 meters above sea-level and is rich in bio-diversity and endemic plants and bird life. The Knuckles ranges is another favorite site for camping. The mountain range consists of 9-peaks which resembles a human hand, and is a combination of thick greenery and natural forests covered in cloud forests having over 30% of all Sri Lanka’s endemic flora. Enjoy a relaxing day with your partner as you soak-up the beauty of the forests and cloudy peaks that surround you as you camp out by some of the many waterfalls and steams that wind through the misty mountains.
