Welcome to Sinharaja Forest Reserve


Because the forest is so dense, wildlife-spotting is not as easy here as it is in many other Sri Lankan reserves and parks. A good guide certainly helps. Note that although visitors are only allowed to walk through the reserve, local villagers are permitted to drive motorbikes along trails as short cuts to get around, disturbing the peace somewhat.
