    What to Expect

    8:30-11:00: Enjoy sightseeing at Sigiriya rock fortress with English / German / French / Russian / Arabic /Japanese / Chinese luggage speaking guide. Sigiriya is famous for its toadstool of golden-hued granite, protruding into the searing blue sky from a hot, flat wilderness of scrubland, which is transformed in the rainy season to a water garden. In the 5th century King Kashyapa domesticated the Lions Rock, by building a palace atop its summit. Sigiriya commemorates some of the turbulence of Sri Lanka history.

    11:00 : After the sightseeing tour of Sigiriya, you will be driven to Polonnaruwa (approx. 1 hour & 30 minutes drive)

    12:30 - 13:30: Enjoy lunch at Thidas Arana Restaurant.  

    13:30- 16:00: After lunch, you will take a cycling tour of one of the better kept ruins of ancient Ceylon with English / German / French / Russian / Arabic /Japanese / Chinese luggage speaking guide - the UNESCO World Heritage City of Polonnaruwa, which was the medieval capital of Sri Lanka. Today you will be cycling about 10km on soft surfaces as you whizz between the ruins. The ancient heart of Sri Lanka. An important royal capital with its well-preserved 12th century ruins & impressive stone culture recalls an inspired past. Although nearly 1000 years old, it is much younger than Anuradhapura and generally in better repair. The monuments are arranged in a reasonably compact garden setting and their development is easier to follow.
