There are many villages around the forest and locals are permitted to enter the area to tap palms to make jaggary. (a hard brown sweet made from the sap of the Kitul tree).
The Sinharaja rainforest is now a World Heritage Reserve and famous for a wide variety of plant and animal life that are endemic to Sri Lanka as well as a variety of shrubs and medicinal herbs. The Bata Na, which is found in the middle ranges of the forest, has unique flush, deep red and dropping leaves.
Small streams found within the forest contain crystal clear cool water and one can watch fish, toads and crabs and you can take a dip to freshen yourself for the next experience. Another characteristic feature of Sinharaja is the wide variety of birds, flowers, plants and fish.
