Here’s a guide that will assist you to enjoy a great tour experience since it’s always wise to know things in detail before you actually experience them.
Getting to Sigiriya
You can travel to Sigiriya which is located in the Matale district of Sri Lanka either by bus, taxi or by a tuk-tuk. In Sri Lanka, internal flights are offered on a daily basis by trusted agents such as Cinnamon Air which make your tours quick, tireless and more enjoyable.
The climb is not hard at all and it will only take around an hour to reach the top if it’s not too crowded with visitors. The best advice is to schedule your climb in the morning so that you will not be hindered by the scorching sun.
The Sigiriya Museum
Once you get the entrance ticket, you get access to the Sigiriya Archaeological Museum as well. So, use that opportunity and explore the history of the Sigiriya Citadel and the ruins as well.
You can get from Sigiriya to Dambulla quite fast, and here you can see the Dambulla Cave Temple which has a great historical significance. The Minneriya National Park is also located close by, and if time permits, you can visit this too.
