3.6 /5

What is the best time to visit Sinharaja Forest Reserve?

Since this is a rainforest, it remains moist most of the year. The best time to visit Sinharaja forest reserve is between January and March and August and September.
Even during the times of the year when rain is least expected, you can expect it to rain in the Sinharaja Forest Reserve. Because of the Lowland Eco location of this forest range in Sri Lanka, it receives a considerable amount of rainfall throughout the year, in which the animals, birds, trees and other living organisms are thriving.
It is best to avoid visiting the forest in the monsoon season, especially from November to December, as the most amount of rainfall occurs during these two months. The range of precipitation throughout the year can be up to 3000 to 6000 mm! The terrain is exceptionally muddy and unsuitable for hiking or trekking. The routes also become slippery, and people may be more prone to accidents during these times.
