DAY 01: DEPARTURE

You will be proceeding to Sigiriya which will take approximately 4-hour drive to reach the destination where you will be getting an unforgettable experience. This destination is situated 145 kilometers away from Colombo.

The place is located in the heart of the island between the towns of Dambulla and Habarana on a massive rocky plateau 370 meters above the sea level. Sigiriya became a Buddhist monastery in 14th century, when it was abandoned.

The main entrance is located in the northern side of the rock. It was designed in the form of a huge stone lion, whose feet have survived up to today but the upper parts of the body were destroyed. Thanks to this lion the palace was named Sigiriya. The term Sigiriya originates from the word Sihagri, i.e. Lion Rock.
