This tropical rain forest believed to be home for almost 50% of Sri Lanka’s endemic wildlife. In this tour, you can explore the lifestyle of the creatures. The high diversity of vegetation within the reserve has made it a favourable sanctuary for various species of birds, mammals, reptiles, insects, fish, amphibians and plant life; all co-existing within the ecosystem. Explore this world heritage site at least one time in your lifespan.

  • Birds tend to move in mixed feeding flocks, invariably led by the fearless Sri Lanka Crested Drongo and the noisy orange-billed babbler. Of Sri Lanka's 26 endemic birds, the 20 rainforest species all occur here, including the elusive red-faced malkoha, green-billed coucal and Sri Lanka blue magpie. Reptiles include the endemic green pit viper and hump-nosed vipers, and there are a large variety of amphibians, especially tree frogs.

  • Invertebrates include the endemic common birdwing butterfly and leeches. The rare endemic birds to be seen in the Sinharaja Rain Forest are the Red-faced Malkoha, the Sri Lanka Blue Magpie, the Ashy-headed Babbler, White-headed Starling and Serendib scops owl etc. The green-billed Coucal has been given the title of being the rarest of Sri Lankan birds.
