Also known as Sri Lanka’s remotest region and named after the ‘mee’ trees in the area, stepping into Meemure is like going back a century or two in time. Life here is simple, and every corner of this place is steeped in history, including the epic tale of Ramayana. The famed Lakegala is easily spotted from anywhere, and you can hike through the Knuckles Forest Reserve and Corbet’s Gap as well. This is also where local producers shot the famous local children’s movie, Sooriya Arana. We recommend visiting from March-September, since weather is best then. The Nitro Cave which was used for gunpowder supply in the days of war and kings is also around for exploration if you wish.
