SIGIRIYA ROCK FORTRESS - 5th century Sigiriya rock fortress which is a world heritage site, built by King Kashyapa (477-495 AD). The 'Lion Rock' is a citadel of unusual beauty rising 200 metres from the scrub jungle. The rock was the innermost stronghold of the 70-hectare fortified town. A moat, rampart, and extensive gardens including the renowned water gardens ring the base of the rock. Visit the world-renowned frescoes of the ‘Heavenly Maidens’ of Sigiriya, which are in a sheltered pocket of the rock approached by a spiral stairway. HIRIWADUNNA VILLAGE TOUR - Your day begins with a pick up from Habarana town at mid-morning. You will then be driven to the trek starting point at Hiriwadunna Village where everything is laid-back unlike the fast pace of the city. Mount a bullock cart for a traditional travel experience that lasts roughly fifteen to thirty minutes through the rural village of Hiriwadunna across scrub lined mud paths and enjoy the cool breeze along with the spectacular views. Your ride stops when you see rows of colourful catamarans arranged at the banks of the artificial reservoir. Enjoy a boat ride across the serene water blanketed with lily pads. The local boatman will make a hat using a lily pad and a lotus flower which you can wear for the rest of your tour. See the views of Sigiriya in the distance and spot a few unique species of birds as the boat is being paddled across the water. Upon reaching the shore you will be escorted to the house of a village local where your authentic Sri Lankan lunch will be cooked from freshly grown produce. Climb a tree house which is used by the local farmers to keep a watch on their crops and scare aware any elephants that come to attack it. After that, board a tuk tuk and enjoy a breezy ride back to the starting point. DEPARTURE / RETURN LOCATION - Colombo / Mount Lavinia
