Price From : US $ 92.00

Introduction

Corbet’s View, flanked by Kobonilagala and Dubangala mountains, is ideal for those who would much prefer to be trekking outdoors and taking in nature’s splendour than worrying about indoor facilities. There is no electricity, telephone or TV here. The water is drawn from a natural spring and solar energy is used for lighting up a few bulbs at night. Corbet’s View has two basic cottages that provide clean and comfortable accommodation. It is popular with Sri Lankan and foreign researchers who come here to study the fascinating bio-diversity of the Knuckles region. Birding and trekking are the main activities and an experienced trekking guide is available to accompany guests. Treks ranging from short one hour trails to whole-day trails are on offer here. Best time to visit the Knuckles is the dry period from February to April. Months to be avoided are from May to July which is the windy season and October to December which is the rainy season.

Accommodation

The main cottage consists of two bedrooms that can sleep up to three guests in each room, a living area, a small dining area and a kitchen. The second cottage located further up on the hill consists of one bedroom that can sleep up to three guests and has a covered terrace for dining. Bedrooms are furnished with single beds. The attached bathrooms have showers, wash basin, and w/c

Sri Lankan rice and curries is served here prepared with fresh village vegetables. Being in a remote village means that meats and fresh fish is limited. A popular dessert here is curd and Kitul treacle which is tapped from the Kitul palm tree, an important means of income-generation for the villagers in this area. The living area in the main cottage has plenty of information on the Knuckles Conservation Range. Corbet’s View is staffed by a manager who is well versed with the area and a resident caretaker who also cooks the meals. There is plenty of garden space here, surrounded by rolling hills.
