The dense, dark and wet Sinharaja rainforest is steeped in deep legend and mystery. The word Sinharaja means, lion (Sinha) king (Raja).
At present, the Sinharaja Reserve covers an area of 8,800 hectares of nature and modified forests. The Reserve lies in the south-west of the island at 60 21' - 60 26' N. and 800 21' - 800 34' E. It measure 21 kilometers in length, and if 7 kilometers in width at its widest point and 3 kilometers at its narrowest. It consists of approximately 6,091 hectares (15,054 acres) of Forest Reserves and 2,773 hectares (6,850 acres) of Proposed Reserves.
There are many villages around the forest and locals are permitted to enter the area to tap palms to make jaggary. (a hard brown sweet made from the sap of the Kitul tree).
The Sinharaja rainforest is now a World Heritage Reserve and famous for a wide variety of plant and animal life that are endemic to Sri Lanka as well as a variety of shrubs and medicinal herbs. The Bata Na, which is found in the middle ranges of the forest, has unique flush, deep red and dropping leaves.
Small streams found within the forest contain crystal clear cool water and one can watch fish, toads and crabs and you can take a dip to freshen yourself for the next experience. Another characteristic feature of Sinharaja is the wide variety of birds, flowers, plants and fish.
During the south west monsoon season you can experience the tropical monsoon in the forest which will be an unforgettable experience.
