DAY 2

Dambulla  

Breakfast at hotel

Proceed to Sigiriya

Imagine you in the middle of a massive 200 meter rock fortress of 5th Century AD… A royal palace built on a colossal rock using the most sophisticated technology; having unique frescoes dating back to over thousand years - a place that has intrigued many archaeologists and historians, let alone the tourists, all over the world.

How do you feel?  Enthralled right?

The remains of the citadel on a massive rock, the unique Lion Gate, the mirror wall, moats, ponds and archaeological ruins of Sigiriya rock makes it the Eighth Wonder of the World.  Well, you have to see it to believe it!

We suggest you visit the museum outside at the main entrance on your way down or before you climb up the summit for a little familiarization to make the most of your tour.

 
In the evening you can trek through the jungles of Habarana, the lake in the jungle with its placid waters is a big attraction so be ready to see plenty of birds both endemic and migratory, crocodile basking in the sun, wild Buffalo roaming around and the occasional Elephant, sometimes in herds, with the baby jumbos tagging along. Be enthralled by the beautiful flora and fauna, while listening to some interesting stories of a colourful past. At the end of an exciting and arduous evening it’s time to refresh, relax and enjoy at the sundown gathering hosted at the edge of the rock cliff that boasts of a panoramic view of the surrounding jungles. Enjoy a glass of wine accompanied by yummy local cuisine and spicy nibbles, while the surrounding is swathed in the golden glow of the setting sun. And if you are in lucks way you might see the mighty Elephants heading for their habitats, before the dark shadows of the night sets in.
