Our guide started the climb from the halfway point so we were saved a series of steps. From there, it was an easy leisurely walk to the top . You can either take the steps or keep left and climb up the slope. Lots of monkeys running around but not aggressive. Beware if you buy lotus flowers as the monkeys love to eat the "lotus heart" and will snatch the flowers away. At the top, you must take off your shoes and pay LKR25 to the "shoekeeper". The cave paintings are very beautiful and well preverved. It is a series of 5 separate caves ranging from the 5th century to 1970s. Be mindful not to touch any of the statues as a sign of respect . View from the top was very nice. Highly recommended !
