Make your way to the Sigiriya rock fortress after lunch for your next climb. This is a bit more of an arduous climb with plenty of aspects to stop and admire as you make your way to the summit.

Dambulla rock cave temple

Sit back and enjoy the drive as you make your way to this UNESCO designated World Heritage site. The Dambulla cave temple dates back to the 1st century BC. The five caves that make up this complex are carved with a drip line to keep the interior dry. The caves house around 150 Buddha statues and murals that adorn the cave ceilings.


Sigiriya rock fortress

Sigiriya was also designated as an UNESCO World Heritage Site and is known to be one of the best preserved examples of urban planning of the first millennium. The palace complex which was built atop a 200m rock includes pleasure gardens, examples of ingenious hydro engineering which allow water retaining structures on the summit of the rock and colourful frescoes decorating the sides. Even if the climb to the summit of this imposing rock doesn't steal your breath away, the views from this vantage point are sure to leave you breathless. The climb requires a reasonable level of physical fitness as it is a somewhat strenuous ascent to the summit.

Sit back and relax as you are taken back to your hotel by our guide.
