Sinharaja and Kitulgala

Sinharaja Rain Forest 

Sinharaja’s importance as Sri Lanka’s only primarily lowland rainforest is recognised by UNESCO, and is a must for wildlife enthusiasts. Located in the southwest of the island, it is a special place. The forest reserve has an exceptional importance in terms of its biodiversity and fragility. Sinharaja is fondly referred to as a bird watcher’s paradise. Indulge in the sound silence of the leafy everglades, in wait of the prize ,Blue Magpie or the Sri Lanka White Eye. It is home to 95% of the endemic birds of Sri Lanka! Steeped in deep mystery, this evergreen rainforest was named after a Lion (Sinha) King (Raja). The legend has it that the origin of the Sinhala people is from the union between a princess and the lion king who once lived in the forest.
