Living in the Shadows of Magnificent Knuckles

The British called it The Knuckles, while referring to its resemblance to the five crests of a clenched fist, when seen from distance in certain parts of the Kandy district in Sri Lanka. Before that, the local peasants used to call it Dumbara Kanduwetiya – mist-layden mountain range - due to its inextricable closeness to layers of mist, especially in the wet season. This week I had the privilege of spending a memorable time at the foothills of the picturesque range of mountains which is listed in the World Heritage Sites, run by the UNESCO.
