Say Sigiriya and be it a local or aa foreigner, everyone knows what this place is all about! Yes, it is one of the most historically significant places on the island. Here are a few amazing things you can do to fully immerse yourself in the destination.
Climb Sigiriya Rock
Climbing the Sigirya Rock or Lion Rock is an absolute must when you are in Sigirya. You will have to pay an entrance fee, but it’s totally worth it for the view and pieces of history that you will see. Why not give it a try if you are not afraid of heights.
Climb Pidurangala Rock
This rock isn’t hard to spot as it is located close to Sigiriya rock as well. Climb Pidurangala and the views will not disappoint you here either. Moreover, you will be able to spot Sigiriya Rock from here as well.
Visit Minneriya National Park
If there are any wildlife enthusiasts out there, Minneriya is certainly a must-visit spot in Sri Lanka. Here you can organise a safari and observe elephants in their natural habitat. Some of the best hotels in Dambulla, Sri Lanka will be able to help you with more information.
A hot air balloon ride
The view is always better when you look at it from above so why not opt for a hot air balloon ride? If you happen to be staying at hotels like Heritance Kandalama between November and April, your hotel staff will be happy to recommend a company that takes up this activity.
