We would highly recommend this hiking tour with Niro. We felt safe the whole way, he took care of us very well and showed us the way we definitly wouldnt find by our selfs. On the way you can choose between a 20 km hike to peek, or a 13 km hike to two waterfalls. We choose the 13 km (way there and back) hike, the waterfalls were stunning even though we went in dry season. You can also swim if you want to. We had a great day, thank you! .


They picked us up in Kandy. Niro's priority is safety! When we arrived the first thing was oiling our feet with something against leeches. Beautiful waterfalls and the view on the valley was amazing. We had a great lunch at the waterfall. Niro knows a lot about fauna and flora of the knuckle forest! Very helpful by climbing and descending on the steep hills. Thank you Niro! It was a nice day!


We had an excellent experience with Niro trekking to the Knuckles waterfalls! Niro is a great guide, very knowledgeable of the area and was very conscientious of our safety as it was raining and quite slippery that day. Overall we had a great day and highly recommend Niro as a guide!


The trekking tour with Niro was a great amazing experience. The 20km long tour through the Knuckles Forest, across the jungle to the highest point was exciting, challenging and unique. Niro showed us native plants and animals. We had a great day and can highly recommend the tour.


Fantastic day trek!! Niro is a very kind, thoughtful and experienced guide. He was very knowledgeable about the Knuckles region and very well prepared. He provided creams and spray for the leeches, meaning we got no bites on the trek and he also provided a nutritious packed lunch which we happily devoured at the summit. Would highly recommend a Knuckles trek with Niro :)


My sister and I had an amazing hike yesterday in the Knuckles Mountain range! Niro was our guide. He is a very gently soul, funny and clearly experienced in what he does. He goes above and beyond to help you get up and down the mountain in a safe fashion. Before the hike even started, Niro demonstrated his care for us by stopping at a hospital to get my wrist the medical care it needed from an injury the day before we met. I recommend this tour to all nature & fitness lovers. The view is absolutely breathtaking. Those who enjoy a physical challenge will love this one! You’ll also be given a rice/chicken lunch box, fruit and snacks along the way! Niro, hope to see you again! 🤝🤝

Niro is a fantastic guide. We did the Adventure Trek to one of the peaks which is 1980m. He pointed out plants and animals along the way and made sure the pace was right. I highly recommend him as a guide in the Knuckles Mountains


A hiking tour through a wonderful wild part of SriLanka. Experiencing the diversity of nature, with waterfalls and great views. Felt like being in paradise.

We had a beautiful few days of trekking the knuckles range. We learned so much about the Knuckles Mountain range while climbing to one of the highest peaks. Niro took us to some very rare places in the knuckles mountain range. Niro is a great guide who spots all the animals and gives you great explanations of the flora and fauna. We felt very safe and learned so much. Would highly recommend it. The night stays were great, so welcoming, friendly people with great food and lovely accommodation in beautiful settings. Thanks so much to Niro and all of the Lankan Getaways team!
