Day 5 | In Sigiriya

Breakfast.

Visit Sigiriya Rock Fortress.

The 5th-century rock citadel of King Kasyapa and World Heritage Site – Sigiriya – doesn’t only boasts of ancient Sri Lankan engineering & urban planning supremacy but also acclaims to be one of the finest monuments of art & culture. Step through the gigantic ‘Lion Paws’ – overlooking the symmetrical royal gardens below – to comprehend the absolute splendor that once dominated this rock fortress. Surrounded by ramparts & moats the Lion Rock – resembling the mythological ‘City of Gods’ – is coated with frescoes that relate to Gupta style paintings found in Ajanta caves of India. Walk in the shade of an eminent ‘mirror wall’ embracing the Western face of Sigiriya representing an artistic hundred meters laminated with graffiti.

Take part in a village tour including a traditional village lunch.

You may choose to take part in a jeep safari in Minneriya National Park at your own cost [optional].

Overnight stay in Sigiriya

Day 6 | Sigiriya to Kandy

Breakfast. Visit Dambulla Cave Temples.

As one reaches the city of Dambulla lies a hub which has been treasured by many kings since the 1st century B.C. Today, an icon in the face of Sri Lanka Dambulla Rock Temple houses some of the unique drawings in magnificently constructed 5 cave temples flanking the golden temple of Dambulla. Observe how exquisitely cave paintings are done along walls that shelter 150 statues of Lord Buddha. As you enter the retreat look straight up to the gigantic Buddha statue glittering in gold over a land which today houses an important junction in the country’s economic and cultural uplifting.

Then, drive to Kandy visiting the spice gardens in Matale en route.

An agricultural zone in the Central Province, Matale seldom drops off the maps due to its remarkable contribution through flagship crops of the island extending from tea, rubber & vegetables to spices. Spearheading the Rebellion back in 1848, Matale today takes immense pride in its story woven around spices. Stop by the side of a spice garden – into which you will be most welcome – and observe the therapeutic values of spices.

In the evening visit Kandy Temple and witness a cultural show featuring traditional Sri Lankan dances.

Fine tune your evening by stepping to the beat of traditional music & drumming amplified by a cultural show enhancing the rich and vibrant culture of the Wonder of Asia, Sri Lanka.

Overnight stay in Kandy

Day 7 | In Kandy

Breakfast. Take part in a city tour in Kandy.

Last ruled by King Sri Wickrama Rajasinghe – before it was brought under the British rule in 1815, Kandy – the World Heritage Site & last royal capital of Sri Lankan kings – crafts an array of culture, history, and heritage in the minds of visitors across the globe.

Visit Embekke Temple.

Overnight stay in Kandy

Day 8 | Kandy to Colombo

Breakfast. Transfer from Kandy to Colombo.

You may choose to visit Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage en route at your own cost [optional].

As you enter the 25-acre coconut property, do not be surprised to witness baby elephants being bottle fed or moving around freely causing absolutely no harm to anyone. It is rightly a sincere sight to observe how these gentle giants – orphaned and sometimes three-legged – are taken care of since 1975 at Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage. Up to date, over 20 calves have been born here, and it is surprising to hear that some of its inmates have even seen their grandchildren during the past few decades!

Overnight stay in Colombo

Day 9 | Depart Colombo

Breakfast. You are at leisure until your flight time.

Transfer to the airport to meet departure flight

Or why not extend your Sri Lanka escape to relax and unwind for 3 nights at the most amazing beach Hikkaduwa.
