Overview of the tour in Sigiriya

Explore the wild, natural countryside of Sigiriya on this wonderful tour. Cycle along the little foot trails, discovering the occasional ruin and hearing their stories from your guide. Climb the marvelous Rock Fortress of Sigiriya, where King Kasyappa ruled many centuries ago. View the famous unfading murals that that is still highly debated. Visit the neatly arranged gardens and leisurely ponds with circulating water that were quite advanced for their time. See the views from the summit of the rock.
The route will take you through some virgin countryside, with native wildlife such as monkeys and deer wandering freely amongst the lush foliage. Your trail won't be large or level, which increases the challenge of this cross-country tour.
Along the way to Sigiriya Rock Fortress, you will be listening to your guide speak about the history of the fortress and the kingdom of Kasyappa who lived in the 5th century AD. You may also be able to spot an occasional ruin along the way, the ruins of Kasyappa's kingdom.
Once you get to the rock fortress you will be climbing a staircase until a little way up you come to the plateau with the lion's paws. SKU: LK60060800
