Pitawala Pathana -

Sub Montane Forest



This is the famous ' Pitawala Pathana ' or the ' Pitawala Grassland ' of an area of 20 Hectares.  This is a best trekking path 750 meters length up  to the magnificent mini worlds end. This Pathana plain is dry teaming with indigenous plants and animal species belong to Knuckles forest reserve.


Due to gale force winds  the trees growing in the pictured area are not growing big. Notice the rocky flat terrain only holds small plants and few survive the hot weather without getting dried. The rainy weather brings them back to life.


The time of the year is February 2016 when these photos were taken.
