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.
