Riverston is one of the mountains of Knuckles mountain range which is located in Matale District, 200km away from Colombo. Backpacking in Knuckles, is to experience every forest range type found in Sri Lanka, travelling from 250 to 4,000 feet above sea level. The hike looks out over the Knuckles mountain range and the surrounding highlands. It’s one of the short day trip hikes in the area. The end of the hike ends with a sharp 300m drop, which made for some pretty epic photos. The peak, with its peaceful and beautiful surroundings, is also a great place to meditate and relax on your holiday to Sri Lanka.
