Description

Hiyare Rainforest is a pristinely preserved rainforest that functions as an Animal Rescue Programme. A visit here will bring you very close to injured wild animals that have been rescued and are receiving treatment. The short guided nature walk in the rainforest will enable you to enjoy some endemic flora and fauna that can be seeing in Sinhara Rain forest. The rainforest spans 600 acres and is filled with interesting varieties of fauna and flora.

7:30 am - You will be picked up by an Air conditioned car and driven to Hiyare

8:00 am - Arrive at the Hiyare forest. A visit here will bring you very close to injured wild animals that have been rescued and are receiving treatment.
