Day 1: Travelling to Sigiriya.

Pass By: Sigiriya, Sigiriya, Central Province
Sigiriya is one of the most valuable historical monuments of Sri Lanka.

Referred by locals as the Eighth Wonder of the World this ancient palace and fortress complex has significant archaeological importance and attracts thousands of tourists every year. It is probably the most visited tourist destination of Sri Lanka.

Stop At: Sigiriya The Ancient Rock Fortress, Sigiriya 21120 Sri Lanka
Sigiriya rock plateau, formed from magma of an extinct volcano, is 200 meters higher than the surrounding jungles.
Its view astonishes the visitors with the unique harmony between the nature and human imagination. The fortress complex includes remnants of a ruined palace, surrounded by an extensive network of fortifications, vast gardens, ponds, canals, alleys and fountains. The western wall of Sigiriya was almost entirely covered by frescoes, created during the reign of Kasyapa. Eighteen frescoes have survived to this day. One of the most striking features of Sigiriya is its Mirror wall. These inscriptions are proving that Sigiriya was a tourist destination more than a thousand years ago. The buildings and gardens of Sigiriya show that the creators of this amazing architectural monument used unique and creative technical skills and technologies.
Duration: 3 hours

Stop At: Golden Temple of Dambulla, Dambulla 21100 Sri Lanka

A popular hike with stunning views of Sigiriya. The entrance to the hike is through a temple.
