What you can expect

Want to have an amazing view of the Sigirya Rock? Than it's time you climb Pidurangala Rock!

Pindurangala Rock is a spectacular sight. History of the rock temple is closely related to Sigiriya Rock Fortress. History says that monks have been living in the caves of Pidurangala 2500 years back. The proof for that is a temple and a 12.5 m long reclining Buddha statue built in a cave. It's said to be the largest brick statue in the world.

Pidurangala Rocks is larger than Sigiriya rock and is a little more difficult to climb, so it's not too crowded with travelers. Keep in mind that it is an medium difficulty hike so some physical fitness is required. Stunning views of acres & acres of evergreen forest with Sigiriya will reward your efforts.

You will have time to let the view sink in you, to feel the breeze, gaze at the sky & I am sure you will definitely get that "Top of The World" feeling.

Kaudulla National Park is our second destination that you simply cannot miss. Here you can easily watch herds of elephants throughout the year. The best time for elephant watching is from September to October. Other species that you can expect to see are the sambar deer, the Sri Lankan deer, leopards & bears.

The park is well known for bird watching, there is a big chance of spotting colonies of pelicans and enjoy the view of them flying around. Lot of reptiles can be close to the lake, but don't be scared: they are beautiful animals!

Join me for these two beautiful destinations, I am sure we will have a great day together! :) Let me know if you'd like to focus on something else, I can always personalize this tour for you.
