Highlights
    What to Expect
    Visit: Sigiriya The Ancient Rock Fortress, Main Road, Sigiriya 21120 Sri Lanka

    You will be picked up from your hotel at 6:00 am. The travel time is around 3.5 hours to reach Sigiriya.

    You will reach Sigiriya approximately 9:30 am. You will climb up the rock through the magnificent entrance flanked by two lion paws, which once formed the base of the lion that the entire rock was carved as. Now only the paws remain of this marvel of architecture that may have rivaled the Sphinx of Egypt in its heyday.

    From here onward you will enter the domain of the ancient king Kashyapa, who ruled in the 5th century CE. You will get to see many wonders, advanced beyond their time; multi-tiered gardens, unfading frescoes, a mirror wall and much more. After viewing these sights you will climb back down with the aid of your guide to leave for your next destination.

    Duration: 3 hours

    Visit: Minneriya National Park, Maradankadawala-Habarana-Thirukkondaiadimadu Highway, 50150 Sri Lanka

    Thereafter you will be having lunch at a local restaurant.

    After a quiet and delicious lunch, you will be leaving for your final destination, Minneriya. You will reach the Minneriya National Park after a travel time of 30 minutes. There you will go on a three-hour mini safari to see the elephants which this park is famous for.

    The park is based around the artificial reservoir created by King Mahasen in the 3rd century CE and is the feeding grounds and home for many species of wildlife. Included in the list of wildlife inhabiting the park are the Sri Lankan Elephant, the Sri Lankan Leopard, the Sri Lankan Sloth, two kinds of deer, many kinds of monkeys, saltwater crocodiles and much more. There are also lots of species of birds; some local and some migratory, so keep your eyes peeled.

    You will finish your safari and leave the park at 5:30 pm and proceed to back to your hotel in Negombo.
