Overview
Sigiriya and Dambulla have been nominated as UNESCO World Heritage and once Sigiriya was nominated as the 8th Wonder of the World. This is a must-do trip when visiting Sri Lanka.
Highlights
  • See Sigiriya and Dambulla in a day from Colombo, Negombo, and other locations
  • Travel to the two UNESCO-protected sights by private air-conditioned vehicle
  • Visit and appreciate Sigiriya and Dambulla in more depth than touring alone
  • All-inclusive trip covers lunch, entry fees, and hotel pickup and drop-off
What to Expect
Book your required tour option and after early-morning pickup from your Colombo, Negombo, Mount Lavinia, Kandy, or Kalutara hotel, make the roughly 4-hour journey to Sigiriya by private air-conditioned vehicle. Marvel at Sigiriya Rock, a granite outcrop rising from scrubland areas that transform into water gardens during the rainy season. Then, climb the metal steps to the rocktop: home to a ruined fifth-century fortress. View the frescoes en route and explore the relics on the summit, the remnants of a royal citadel built by King Kasyapa. After lunch at the Oakray Restaurant in Inamaluwa, visit the UNESCO-listed Rock Temple of Dambulla: five hill caves converted into a temple in the first century BC and filled with Buddha statues. Inspect the caves with their stunning wall and ceiling murals as your guide shares Dambulla's history. Your trip finishes at the original departure point.
