Overview
What to Expect
you will be starting your tour at 0630 hrs from your hotel in Colombo, where you will be picked up by your chauffeur. Ensure that you bring a packed breakfast with you if you are unable to have your meal at the hotel.

The first stop on your itinerary will be the Sigiriya Rock Fortress which you will reach approximately 1030 hrs.  (Travel Time 3 ½ to 4 hrs)

Climb the 5th century AD rock fortress, Sigiriya, where the King Kasyapa ruled. Walk through the entrance framed by the paws of a lion that is quite appropriate for its name, ' the Lion Rock'. View the beautiful unfading murals that brought Sigiriya its fame. Climb the steep staircase to see the terraced gardens and still-working cisterns.  Walk through the tunnels leading to the palace as you get a feel for times long past.

Thereafter proceed to Sigiriya at approximately 1330 hrs to experience a village tour. (Travel Time 20 to 30 mins)

The trek begins with an awesome walk along a bund of a “Wewa” or man-made reservoir. Thereafter you will enjoy a Bullock Cart Ride while enjoying sightseeing of the rural village life. Your next phase of adventure will be a “Catamaran Safari” at the scenic lake.

Finally, enjoy Traditional Lunch at a local house prepared by the village women (At your own cost)  This is arranged on a typical & traditional Buffet style (Clay pots – buffet) served on a Lotus leaf and a cane thatched flat holder. You will also have the opportunity to witness the traditional meal preparation methods by the local women and to partake on the preparation of a curry.

Later that evening you will be finishing the tour at 1800 hrs and returning to your hotel in Colombo.(Travel time approximately 04 Hours) En-route you may stop at restaurant for the dinner (At your own cost).

After dinner you would transfer to the hotel in Colombo.
