What to Expect
You will be starting your tour at 6 AM from your hotel in Negombo, where you will be picked up by our driver. 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 by approximately 10 to 10 30 AM. You will be spending about 3 hours hiking the Sigiriya rock fortress. 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. Thereafter proceed to Sigiriya at approximately 1 30 PM to experience a village tour. 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 a traditional lunch at a local house prepared by the village women (at your own expense). This is arranged on a typical & 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 preparation of a curry. At the end, visitors will be having a Tuk-Tuk (three wheeler) tour back to the starting point. Total tour will be approximately 8 km. Later that evening you will be finishing the tour at and returning to your hotel in Negombo. En-route you may stop at a restaurant at your choice and have dinner (at your own expense).
