tour highlights Sigiriya Rock FortressVillage Tour, Elephant Safari

In the early morning, visit the rock fortress of Sigiriya. It was built by King Kasyapa in the 5th century on top of a vast 200m granite rock. It took the king seven years to build Sigiriya and the site was abandoned after ten years of occupation when the king, defeated by his brother, committed suicide. Although it is a steep climb, the views and frescoes are definitely worth the effort. Sigiriya is best visited first thing in the morning or just before sunset when it is cooler and less crowded.

Take a tour of a local village nearby, enjoying the walks through paddy fields and the cool breeze.  It is an opportunity to get acquainted with the typical village life, as you meet village folk and their families. You will engage in cookery demonstration along with a bullock cart ride. Just after the bullock cart ride, you will also have a boat ride. End the day with an authentic Sri Lankan lunch.

In the afternoon enjoy an elephant and wildlife safari. Return to the hotel for overnight stay.

En route we will stop at the famous Cave Temples of Dambulla which was built by King Valagambahu in the 1st century BC. Perched upon a gigantic granite outcrop, which towers more than 160m above the surrounding land, the caves are completely covered by ancient frescoes depicting religious and secular scenes. Protected within the caves are hundreds of statues of Buddha, many carved out of the rock itself, of which the largest is the 15m long reclining Buddha

Arrive in Kandy which was the last Singhalese kingdom.  It is a charming city with the most important Buddhist temple in the country. The city is surrounded by an ancient artificial lake and is nestled amidst rolling hills that are covered by forests and tea plantations.

Kandy is a great place to buy gemstones too.  Sapphires of all colours, rubies, tourmalines and spinel’s can all be found here.  Visitors are also invited to have a look around their workshop, where they will be able to see the design, and cutting, polishing and setting processes.
