The Kanneliya rain forest is an oasis of green through which two of the island’s main rivers are running. This is one of the lesser known lowland rain forests in the island, and it is also home to around 80 hamlets. It spans across a total of 12 , 216 hectares of land. You will trek through this serene forest reserve with a wildlife tracker to catch a glimpse of wild animals and birds, snakes, monkeys, chameleons, parrots and blue magpies to name a few. Dangling vines wind their way up around looming trees, while the emerald green canopy is adorned with pretty orchids. This is a 2 km hike from the entrance. You will also come across the Anagimala falls, which cascades like a flimsy veil from boulders.
