Niro,
When I asked this question in last December from Kelebokka Mgr he said he can give permission as the premises (Huts/accommodation) not yet opened to the public.
However you can contact him and try. Mr Palitha - 0772 475 124 or 0815 633 905

Hi Ashan,

Hatale Mini WE is the place we can have a clear sight of Knuckles mountain/peaks. There is a waterfall near by Madolkele Eco lodge. Huh but I couldn't visit during my trip.
Also We can go to Hunnasgiriya mountain also.

Want to do Kelebokka soon. Cool

Thanks for sharing beautiful places as usual.

tempting indeed! your interest is Hathale or both? if its Both get down at Katugasthota station or kandy station and take the Panvila bus. get down at Pannvila and take a trishaw to Hathale and if the driver agrees you could take him to kelebokka too.but the hire is going to be an expensive one.
