About

What to expect
The cycling tour starts at the entrance to the Sigiriya Rock Fortress. From there, you ride through "Thalkote", a remote isolated village to the Thalkotawewa (reservoir). At the village, you will be able to see and experience how traditional farming (paddy and other crops) is done. Chena cultivation (slash and burn farming) is prevalent in the area. The region's clean air and friendly environment is perfect for stress relief. The village borders Thalkotawewa, its main source of water. Thalkotawewa and the thickets surrounding it are also perfect for bird watching in the morning and evening (the typical tour times). If you choose to take the tour in the morning, you may even witness signs of the presence of wild elephants in the area the night before. Stop and interact with villagers in the area and enjoy their hospitality. Make sure you take in the rich history of the area, as you make brief stops at a few of the archaeological sites. We stop at different places to meet the locals and to refresh ourselves.
