Knuckles Mountain Range Back to Attractions

Back to Attractions

The Knuckles Mountain Range lies in central Sri Lanka, in the Districts of Matale and Kandy. The range takes its name from a series of recumbent folds and peaks in the west of the massif which resemble the knuckles of clenched fist when viewed from certain locations in the Kandy District. Whilst this name was assigned by early British surveyors, the Sinhalese residents have traditionally referred to the area as Dumbara Kanduvetiya meaning Mist-laden Mountain Range (Cooray, 1984).

Mini Worlds end
Smaller than usual World's end is a slope located at the southern end of the Knuckles range. From this area, the panoramic view of the knuckles range and a portion of the towns located in the foot slopes of knuckles can be seen. The place is called " Mini worlds end " as it takes after a littler variant of the "world's end" drop located at Horton Plains National Park.
