Peak Wilderness Sanctuary

The third largest natural forest reserve in Sri Lanka, the Peak Wilderness Sanctuary is a tropical rainforest which that spreads over a land area of 224 square kilometers and derives its name from the surrounding areas of Adams Peak, Horton Plains, Pidurutalagala and Hakgala mountain ranges. The contours of this sanctuary vary from 1,000 to 7,360 feet above sea level possessing unusual geographical formations compared to the other natural reserves of the island. It is the birthplace of several rivers namely, Kelani, Kalu and Walave rivers and many tributaries of the river Mahaweli with several beautiful waterfalls inside the sanctuary.

In 2009 the world’s rarest toad, the Adenomus kandianus which was thought to be extinct for 133 years, was rediscovered in this rainforest.
