The Knuckles range derives its name from the similarity of its ridges to the knuckles of a closed fist. This mountain range lies in Kandy and Matale Districts of Central Sri Lanka. It is separated from the main Central highlands by the deeply incised valley of the Mahaweli river, commonly referred to as the ‘ Dumbara Valley’ (Dumbara means veiled with mist).The general landscape of the area is extremely rugged, with at least 35 peaks rising above 900m.The aggregation of spectacular peaks is a unique feature of the Knuckles forest range. The highest peak is Gombaniya (1900 m) The Knuckles mountains have been designated a forest reserve in recognition of its natural habitats that harbor some unique plants and animals, and in view of its importance as a water shed area, with several streams draining into the Mahaweli river basin. In the Eastern slopes the streams drain to Mahaweli River through Sudu Ganga, Kalu Ganga &Ambang Ganga. In the Western slope the streams flow to Mahaweli Ganga through Huluganga.

The highlands are extremely wet throughout the year, with an average annual rainfall of over 4000 mm, and temperature that ranges between 18-20° centigrade. The area is also exposed to strong winds during monsoon periods. The wide array of climate and landscape features in the knuckles camping site have resulted in a rich composition of animals and plants, some of which are unique to Sri Lanka.
