1 Night / 2 Days Package Book Now

Meemure is a village of Sri Lanka near the border between Kandy District and Matale District in the Knuckles Mountain Range with the population about 400. Meemure is one of the most remote villages in Sri Lanka with the only access via a 14km trail from the town of Loolwatte. To imagine how remote this village is, there is no cellular service to this village; only the CDMA telephones are available. Meemure village owns an exceptional natural beauty. It is rich with natural beauty as well as Traditional Sri Lankan styles. Villagers of Meemure depend on several staple crops including pepper, cardamom, paddy and ginger.

Driving through the Knuckles Range on a gravel road, you will arrive at a spot from where continuous range of stone ridges were seen lining the sideway of the road. These stone ridges indicate you that you’re entering the Meemure village lying in a valley amidst the Vamarapuagala, Uda Vannimana and Palle- Vannimana and Lakegala Peak. An aura of serenity pervaded this quaint little village, the life-style and its traditional values zealously guarded by its elders from the ‘pollution’ of rapid technological developments. Acres and acres of green paddy fields stretching endlessly, dotted here and there with patches of arecanut trees or reed-bushes; cattle grazing peacefully in home-gardens; the boundaries of houses and lands demarcated by stone-ridges with stones piled neatly one on top of the other; wooden fences leading to large home-gardens with rock stones as steps to the houses and the Karambaganga Ela gently flowing by marking one boundary of Meemure. This is the first impression of this environment-friendly peaceful village of Meemure boasting of a history dating to the period of Ravana and long before the advent of Prince Vijaya to Lankapura.


The trail starts quite easily through the paddy fields but starts to takes its toll later on. Trekking up the trail hikers come across many risky steeps where they have be cautious at all the time. Safety First! Further hiking through the forest with the help of trees for climbing, and as they go nearly up to the summit hikers will have to maneuver closer to the edge of the rock where the Navarathna waterfall making this falls. When the hikers finally arrive at the top of the Navarathna Falls they can enjoy a sensational feeling like no other. On the way to the Navarathna Falls hikers will get to cross a small waterfall called Ice Wala. Ice Wala (English definition for Ice Hole) name was given to this waterfall because of the cold water of this waterfall. Hikers can rest there if they feel they need some rest.
