Ruma what now?

Rumassala is located in the sunny beach side town of Unawatuna – the south of Sri Lanka. If you’re staying at one of the many Unawatuna hotels, be sure to ask how to get to the mountain!

Legend has it that...

Rumassala was believed to have been a fallen chunk of the Himalayan Mountain, following the legend of Hanuman’s delivery of medicinal herbs to Lakshan in the great story of Ramayana.

Wildlife

Surrounded by rainforests and jungles can only mean that there’s plenty of wildlife on the island. While hiking here, keep an eye out for monkeys, birds and many more fauna.

What to carry

Like any hiking trip, carrying water is always crucial. Hiking gear isn’t particularly necessary. Do pack your swimsuit and a towel though – as on your way back down you can stop for a refreshing swim at Jungle Beach.
