Clue: When British settlers first looked up at the knobbly peaks dominating this mysterious land, their shape reminded them of a part of the human skeleton - which is how the mountains got their English name. In the local language they are simply called 'misty'.
A 31,000-hectare expanse of this upland region - in the centre of an island nation that has been independent for more than 65 years - was declared a conservation forest in 2000 and became part of a larger World Heritage Site a decade later. It's an extraordinarily beautiful place, a befuddling whirl of landscapes from grassy plain to cloud forest. Elephant, buffalo and boar may be seen galumphing around; and at quieter moments, if you're very patient and reasonably lucky, you might spot a leopard, jackal or loris. It's also a botanical bonanza, with about 160 endemic flowering plants, many of them found nowhere else on earth.
The island's recorded history stretches back 3,000 years, and there's evidence of a lively prehistory too; but it has only been known by its current name since the early 1970s. Where are you?

To enter, identify the mountain range where the photograph was taken.


MY ANSWER: The Knuckles Range, Sri Lanka

The Knuckles Mountain Range lies in central Sri Lanka, in the Districts of Matale and Kandy. The range takes its name from a series of recumbent folds and peaks in the west of the massif which resemble the knuckles of clenched fist when viewed from certain locations in the Kandy District. Whilst this name was assigned by early British surveyors, the Sinhalese residents have traditionally referred to the area as Dumbara Kanduvetiya meaning mist-laden mountain range


Sri Lanka, officially the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka, is an island country in the northern Indian Ocean off the coast of South India in South Asia. Known until 1972 as Ceylon

Sri Lanka has a documented history that spans over 3,000 years but there are theories to suggest that Sri Lanka had pre-historic human settlements dating back to at least 125,000 years

A remarkably high proportion of the species among its flora and fauna, 27% of the 3,210 flowering plants and 22% of the mammals are endemic. Sri Lanka has declared 24 wildlife reserves, which are home to a wide range of native species such as Asian elephants, leopards, sloth bears, the unique small loris, a variety of deer, the purple-faced langur, the endangered wild boar, porcupines and Indian pangolins

Central Highlands of Sri Lanka is the newest recognised world Heritage Site in Sri Lanka. On 31 July 2010, the World Heritage Committee holding its 34th session in Brasília inscribed Central Highlands of Sri Lanka and Papahanaumokuakea of Hawaii as new World Heritage Sites.[1] The site comprises the Peak Wilderness Protected Area, the Horton Plains National Park and the Knuckles Conservation Forest.
