Stop At: Sigiriya The Ancient Rock Fortress, Sigiriya 21120 Sri Lanka

You will start your tour at 6am from your hotel in Colombo, where you will be picked up by your chauffeur. Ensure that you bring a packed breakfast with you if you are unable to have your meal at the hotel.

The first stop on your itinerary will be the Sigiriya Rock Fortress which you will reach approximately 10:30am. (Travel time: 3.5 to 4 hours)

Rising from the central plains, the iconic rocky outcrop of Sigiriya is perhaps Sri Lanka's single most dramatic sight. Near-vertical walls soar to a flat-topped summit that contains the ruins of an ancient civilization, thought to be once the epicenter of the short-lived kingdom of Kassapa, and there are spellbinding vistas across mist-wrapped forests in the early morning.

Climb the 5th century AD rock fortress, Sigiriya, where the King Kasyapa ruled. Walk through the entrance framed by the paws of a lion that is quite appropriate for its name, the Lion Rock. View the beautiful unfading murals that brought Sigiriya its fame. Climb the steep staircase to see the terraced gardens and still-working cisterns.  Walk through the tunnels leading to the palace as you get a feel for times long past.


Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Sigiriya Craft Village, Kimbissa, Sigiriya Sri Lanka

Thereafter, proceed to Sigiriya at approximately 1:30pm to experience a village tour. (Travel time: 20 to 30 minutes)

The trek begins with an awesome walk along a bund of a “Wewa” or man-made reservoir. Thereafter, you will enjoy a Bullock Cart Ride while enjoying sightseeing of the rural village life. Your next phase of adventure will be a “Catamaran Safari” (Double paired canoe joined together with seating facility) at the scenic lake.

Finally, enjoy traditional lunch at a local house prepared by the village women. This is arranged on a typical and traditional buffet style (clay pots – buffet) served on a lotus leaf and a cane thatched flat holder. You will also have the opportunity to witness the traditional meal preparation methods by the local women and to partake on the preparation of a curry. At the end, visitors will be having a Tuk-Tuk (three wheeler) tour back to the starting point.

Later that evening you will be finishing the tour at 3:30am and returning to your hotel in Colombo by approximately 7:30pm. En route you may stop at a restaurant of your choice and have dinner (at your own expense).

Duration: 2 hours
