Itinerary

ARRIVAL COLOMBO

Arrive at Colombo airport, where a representative will meet, greet, and transfer you to the selected hotel in Colombo. Enjoy the rest of the day at leisure.

Overnight  in Colombo. Dinner included. 

  Hotel:  None

COLOMBO – DAMBULLA – POLONNARUWA (230km – 5 hrs) 

Early in the morning, you will be picked up from your hotel in Colombo. Begin the tour with a visit to Dambulla Rock Temple to explore this 2,000-year-old sacred pilgrimage site carved deep inside a mountain. This awe-inspiring complex of five caves is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that features thousands of metres of painted walls and ceilings and contains more than 150 images of the Buddha as well as other deities and Sri Lankan kings. Continue to Polonnaruwa for a luscious lunch. Afterwards, take a city tour of Polonnaruwa and discover the well-preserved ruins of this ancient city. Built about 1,000 years ago, it features a large artificial lake, which is still in use and feeds a network of irrigation canals, the remains of a royal palace and a number of temples and administrative buildings. Transfer to your hotel in Sigiriya/ Dambulla/ Habarana and enjoy a delicious dinner!

Overnight  in Sigiriya/Dambulla/Habarana. Breakfast, lunch and dinner included.

  Hotel:  None

POLONNARUWA – KANDY (195km – 4 hrs)

Take the road after a tasty breakfast. Begin to explore with a climb to the fifth-century Sigiriya fortress, which sits atop a rock that dramatically rises almost 200 metres above the rainforest. King Kashyapa built a citadel at the top of this giant boulder known as the ‘Lion Rock’, which was the innermost stronghold of a vast fortified city. In time, it was abandoned and forgotten until the British found it and began an archaeological exploration. Today, the remnants of this once thriving city offer a tantalising indication of what once stood here. Pass through the lion’s ‘belly’, climb to the top, and enjoy the breathtaking views. Then, continue to Kandy, visiting a spice garden on the way. Indulge in a delectable lunch in Kandy and enjoy an afternoon city tour that includes the Temple of the Tooth Relic. In the evening, witness a cultural show, followed by a savoury dinner at the hotel.  

Overnight  in Kandy . Breakfast, lunch and dinner included.

KANDY – PINNAWALA – DEPART COLOMBO (130km – 4 hrs)
