Katusu Konda (Hantana) | Place to Hike & Camping in Sri Lanka

Katusu Konda
Katusu Konda (lit: the Lizard's Back; Sinhala: කටුසු කොන්ද) is a peak [1,322 m (4337.27 ft. amsl)] at the end of the Hanthana Mountain Range in Kandy District, Sri Lanka. It is popular among local tourists as a site of adventurous hiking and sightseeing.

The site gets its name because it is a high peak in the shape of a knife edge similar to a lizard's backbone. The path gets risky at the top part of the summit to trek due to the high winds and the narrow and steep slopes. The hike takes about 3-4 hours to complete and travellers are advised to avoid rainy days and also to bring water and other necessities.
