One can experience clouds covering up the area and then passing off at Riverston area making the atmosphere cold.

Riverstone mountain is located in the middle of Rattota – Pallegama road and it is the summit of the same. Being located in a windy gap on a range of scenic mountains with frequently changing climate. The Riverstone was highly popular with local & foreign travelers. 

Two telecommunication towers are setup on the both summits of the Riverstone Mountain. The access road for visitors is a private one and no vehicles are allowed beyond the Riverstone gap, but pedestrians. The climate is changed in every minute. Sometimes it brought little sun rays. Sometime it is a tiny rain with cool wind. But most of the time visitors can wrap with a thick mist. Really that is an amazing experience.

The forest is consisted with pigmy trees. “Maha rewla” (Old man’s beard) and many orchids were driven out their loneliness. The mist is gained them a fresh & wet look forever. 
The communication tower does play a game of hide and seeks in the mist.  Also, when someone climbs step by step, can be seen the special place called windy bend. In some seasons; misty powerful wind does enough to lift a human being at the windy bend.

Just after the windy bend, there is an eye-catching view of Pitawala pathana & paddy fields of lonely villages in the Knuckles range. Since the surrounding is covered with a shawl of mist.
