Climatic conditions here are very similar to Horton plains with the addition of having two great waterfalls “Sera Ella” and “Bambarakiri Ella”, both of which are a site for sore eyes, don’t forget to relax on the rock seats of “Sera Ella” relishing the cold misty spray of water on your face and Thelgamu Oya offers a great site for a dip in crystal clear but chilly water. Travelling further upstream on this very scenic stream will no doubt will make you feel refreshed and rejuvenated. We recommend that you plan a trekking trip to the misty Riverston peak via Pittawala Pathana, as it offers some of the greatest views of the central hills across the mini worlds end which ends in a sheer drop of 300 meters offering a great vista especially of the “Knuckles range”, and the Thelgamu valley below with its terraced paddy field method unique to the central hills of Sri Lanka.

Riverston and nearby peaks
Riverston is very popular among local and international visitors for trail tracking, nature sceneries, waterfalls and so many other nature related activities. This is why many people come here to enjoy the nature.Passing Riverston and with the gradual climb down along the motor way, one can see sevaral peaks of Knuckles Mountain range such as Gombaniya,Yakungala,Kirigalpotta,Dorakulugala and Kobonilagala.

Pitawala Pathana
'Pitawala Pathana' or the 'Pitawala Grassland' is an unique area of 20 Hectares. Due to winds, the trees growing in the pictured area are not growing big.There is a rocky flat terrain only holds small plants and few survive the hot weather without getting dried. The rainy weather brings them back to life.

Hundreds of water streams with abundance of crystal clear water makes the whole region come alive with all types of ferns and mosses. The Riverston route to the Knuckles rich with the fascinating humid nature.
