Day 2 & 3
After exploring Colombo the first day, you will be driven to the city of Anuradhapura. This is the city of ancient ruins where you can obtain an in-depth exploration of the history of Sri Lanka. One of the stops here is the Yapahuwa ancient city: a 300 foot fortified wonder that dates back to the 13th century. Around this area you will also visit the Mihintale Buddhist Temple where you will find more ruins amongst the first Buddhist Temple in Sri Lanka.

On day four, you will move from Anuradhapura to Sigiriya where we have some adventure lined up for you amidst the dated historical ruins. Sigiriya, also known as the “Lions Rock” is a palace built by an ancient King on top of a rock. To see the palace you have to climb the rock, which is quite a do-able activity by most of us. During your climb you will see some beautiful frescos embedded in the rock and a Lion’s Gate, as the entrance to the palace. At the top you will see ruins of the palace as well as an amazingly breathtaking view of the cultural triangle of Sri Lanka. After this adventurous activity, you will be driven to Heritance Kandalama for a relaxing night stay in a luxurious atmosphere.
