+ Super friendly guides
+ Food and stay at the "basecamp" were exceptional
+ Great lunch
+ Difficulty level was estimated correctly (hard was hard :) )
+ We were able to change routes on demand (flexible)
+ Very diversified routes for every day
+ Not very many other tourists on our routes (in low season)
+ Beautiful nature around Knuckles ranges

- The itinerary for the day was not always clear. It would be great if more information about the route would be given at the start of the day or the night before.

Thank Alex J

We had a great trip with sachi hiking in knuckles. On the first day: through jungle, visiting waterfalls some nice views, through tea plantations. It was probably not the most exciting hiking I have done, nor as demanding as I like, but still very enjoyable. I think we were a bit unlucky with cloud cover which prevented us from getting the best views from certain summits. Obviously there is nothing Sachi can do about the weather and he did give us options along the way. The lunch was local and very tasty. The camping later was great...comfortable foam matresses, nice food, friendly hosts and a nice camp fire.

The next day we walked down through a valley which was full of food producing plants...rice, cardamom, pepper, mango, jackfruit, tamarind (delicious to pick and eat!). We stopped and swam at some nice waterfalls, which was great. And we finished with yet another great meal.

Sachi kindly sent us some nice pics that he took during the trip...he seems to have an eye for a good photo!

I would recommend a trip with Sachi. Our experience was quite light and easy going, but I am sure he can organise more challenging trips if you ask.

My boyfriend and I did the hardest option hike we could find with a night in base camp. Had the best time - the hike was a good challenge on day one, and a nice meandering walk on day two, with a swim in the waterfall on the second day. Our guide Ravi was extremely attentive and patient, and we learned heaps about the nature and culture of the country. We stopped to play cricket with some local children, and the camping was very comfortable - the tents are set up in small huts off the ground, clean and even a foam mattress and pillows were provided! So it was glamping really. I would suggest you BYO snacks for during the day as we would have been hungry if we we hadn't - it's a long day on the first day with a large gap between hotel breakfast and packed curry lunch on the hill. I highly recommend this company.

We had an excellent trip with Sachi, he was friendly and knowledgable. We gave him a list of what we wanted to see in Sri Lanka and he customised a tour that fitted our needs perfectly. The safari's in Minneriya and Yala national park were superb and we were very lucky to see Leopards in Yala. We visited the main attractions including temple of the tooth and we did some awesome trekking in the Knuckles mountains. We even managed to get a hot air balloon ride which Sachi set up for us. The accommodation throughout the week was incredible, the knuckles range accommodation was the only night that was basic but it was comfortable and all part of the experience. Truly spectacular trip and I highly recommend Kandy green Tours.

Awesome hike through the Knuckles with a relatively fit bunch of strangers - our guide judged our fittness level and pushed us to some of the finest views the Knuckles has to offer. This hike is not for the feint hearted but well worth the effort. Knowledgable observant guide was able to show us some of the indigenous lizards and birds on the way and also provided a super tasty lunch
