SINHARAJA RAIN FOREST

Sinharaja rain forest is a UNESCO world heritage site. This Tropical Wet Evergreen Forest is undoubtedly a rich treasure trove of nature with a great diversity of habitats and a vast repository of endemic species. Bird Watching in this ecosystem is particularly interesting because it is home to 95% of the endemic birds of Sri Lanka. This lowland evergreen rain forest is steeped in deep legend and mystery. The word 'Sinharaja' means, Lion (Sinha) King (Raja), and it is popular belief that the legendary origin of the Sinhala people is the union between a princess and the lion king who once lived in the forest. You will be privileged to learn of geology, plant lives & animal lives during the trekking with a naturalist.
