Central Highlands

 

The Central Highlands of Sri Lanka are located in the south-central part of the island.

Its position as a “super biodiversity hotspot” has led to its inscription as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This site comprises three areas: Peak Wilderness Protected Area, the Horton Plains National Park, and the Knuckles Conservation Forest.

These are montane rain forests, where the elevation reaches 8,200 ft (2,500 m) above sea level.

They are home to an extraordinary range of flora and fauna, including several endangered species such as the western-purple-faced langur, the Horton Plains slender loris and the Sri Lankan leopard

Overall Atmosphere: Natural
A Natural Atmosphere includes a diverse range of destinations with outdoor-oriented features, including both water-based (beaches, rivers, lakes, etc) and land-based (mountains, forests, deserts, etc). It also includes specific outdoor activities, ranging from water adventuring (eg, kayaking, sailing) to land adventuring (eg, hiking, biking).

Natural Interests tend to be:
(a) outdoors-oriented, and therefore more dependent on weather conditions
(b) less easily accessible and more physically demanding than other destination categories.

In some cases (eg, rafting and climbing), this includes a significantly increased degree of adventure (or danger, depending on one's viewpoint).
Featuring mainly outdoors-oriented natural attractions.
