Mist envelops Knuckles range following heavy showers


The rainy weather that has hit the Central Province has caused heavy fogging around the Knuckles Mountain range. The mountain range, which covers 65 acres, is located on the border of the Matale and Kandy districts.

While this name was given to the area by early British surveyors, Sinhalese residents have traditionally referred to it as Dumbara Kanduvetiya, which means Mist-laden Mountain Range. The fog caused by the prevailing wind currents has completely rained the top of the mountain range, where many television and radio towers are located. According to environmentalists, you can easily experience the deep-rooted atmosphere that many tourists who come to enjoy the wonders of Knuckles enjoy these days.
