Sri Lanka's surviving stretch of virgin rainforest.


Back Back

Sinharaja Rainforest, is the last stretch of virgin rainforest left in Sri Lanka, an enchanting, peaceful and beautiful environment which stirs the senses at every turn. The dense vegetation hosts a wide variety of Sri Lanka’s wildlife, such as the endemic purple-faced leaf monkey, grey langurs and torque macaques, a few elephants and approximately 15 leopards, snakes and frogs, as well as a wide variety of exotic butterflies and many different species of bird, including 20 of the 26 native species.

Located at the south-west foot of the island’s hill country, close to the remote riverside area of Kitulgala where a variety of adventure sports are on offer, Sinharaja offers excellent opportunities for trekking, nature walks and birdwatching, and is an ideal spot for those seeking a specialised wildlife holiday, adventurous tour or a gloriously escapist location.
