    Sinharaja is a vast forest which covers an area of approximately 11,000ha, is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Located quite close to Ratnapura with approaches from other directions as well, this dense rain forest has an amazing variety of flora and fauna, and this has caught the attention of scientists as well as nature lovers who make excursions into the jungle to explore and appreciate its many natural wonders. Among these are cool waterfalls, rushing streams and crystal clear freshwater streams. A lot of attention and emphasis is now being placed on the conservation of this precious treasure that is Sinharaja. The vegetation of Sinharaja forest is evergreen forest type with a high degree of endemism. In fact some families show an endemism more than 90%. The untapped genetic potential of Sinharaja flora is enormous. Average height of the trees varies between 35m – 40m.some individuals rise even up to 50m. Studies on the fauna of Sinharaja have revealed that there is a high degree of endemism among the butterflies, fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals are greater than 50%.The most common deer species is the Sambhur, The Monk deer and Barking deer are also found within the reserve.

    Day 2: Deniyaya - Udawalawe National Park - Colombo

    Stop At: Udawalawe National Park Sri Lanka
    Udawalawe National Park was established in 1972 as an important environment for the conservation of rare birds such as the white wagtail, the black capped kingfisher and the serpent eagle, and wild animals displaced by the construction of the Udawalawe Reservoir. It is better known as one of the best places in the world to see wild elephants. Udawalawe National Park provides a safe habitat for the Sri Lankan elephants, with a growing heard of about 250 elephants permanently in residence who are attracted towards the river. The chances of witnessing a herd of Sri Lankan elephants is extremely high particularly near rivers and the reservoir of Udawalawe, and if you are lucky you may catch sight of a young calf being carefully guarded by its mother, or an extremely rare majestic tusker. The dry season (which usually occurs between the months of May and September) is the ideal time in the year to visit Udawalawe. Other attractions which can also be visited in the surrounding area include the Wavulpane limestone caves, and the Elephant Transit Home, an organisation established in 1995 to home abandoned or orphaned elephant calves. Due to the dry conditions of the region, Udawalawe presents a vividly different environment when compared with the western and central regions of the country.
