You will be picked up from your hotel and driven to Sigiriya by an Air conditioned car.


On arrival, your guide will lead you through a typical Sri Lankan village. Look out for wildlife such as birds, butterflies, and maybe even crocodiles at the manmade reservoir where villagers wash clothes or fish at the periphery of the lake. Hop into a boat for a short cruise across the lake, then climb into a bullock cart which will take you to a village house for an authentic Sri Lankan lunch from noon to 1pm.


After lunch, get back into the vehicle for the trip to Sigiriya, approximately 30 minutes away.


Spend three hours exploring the rock fortress. its toadstool of golden-hued granite protruding into the blue sky from a hot, flat wilderness of scrubland. During the rainy seasons, this scrubland is transformed into to a water garden. Climb the steps to the Sigiriya's summit, where you can find ruins of King Kashyapa's palace, built in the 5th century, and admire scenic views as far as the eye can see.


Leave Sigiriya and proceed back to your hotel

"Our All-Inclusive Sigiriya Village and Rock Fortress Private Tour was simply amazing! The visit to the village gave us a genuine glimpse into local life, and the climb up Sigiriya Rock Fortress was breathtaking. The views were spectacular, and the ancient frescoes were fascinating. Everything was perfectly organized, making it a truly unforgettable experience!"

I think to say that this experience was the highlight of our trip is an understatement. This is an experience NOT TO MISS. We've been reminiscing about it even weeks post our travel. The company was super organized and flexible. I wanted them to include extras like driving a tractor, etc and they were more than accommodating. They picked us up and dropped us off timely. Everything ran smoothly.
