The clime is cool and inside you’ll fine wet grasslands and highland forestry landscapes. Hikers have special routes to take, if that’s your preference, like entering the Park using a trail from Belihul Oya Town. The scenic vistas alone are stunning. Add superb species like the highly endangered Slender Loris, Sambar Deer, Leopards and several types of birds and you have a Park that will leave you breathless.
