The Rose Quartz Mountain Range referred to as the "Jathika Namal Uyana" by the locals. A wonderful natural forest reserve with a vast pink quartz mountain range, the largest in the South Asia. Also, the largest red wood forest in Sri Lanka. The Pink Quartz Mountain Range is located in the village of Ulpathgama in the district of Anuradhapura in the North Central Province of Sri Lanka. A longer walk about 30 minutes leads through a forest of ancient ironwood trees. Halfway up, you have a wonderful view of the Rose Quartz Mountain.

A winding walkway leads you through the forest whose canopy is so dense that sunlight only penetrates the undergrowth in a few, scattered patches.
The rose quartz mountain range found within the ironwood forest is believed to be the largest in Asia, comprising seven peaks above 150m. From atop the mountain range you will see stunning vistas stretch unending miles to the horizon, toque macaques clambering amongst the rocks and Sri Lanka’s largest montane eagle, the black eagle, soaring majestically on the slowly rising thermals.
