Day 1

Thereafter proceed to Negombo and do the boat safari in Muthurajawela.

Muthurajawela Boat ride

Take a day trip from Colombo or Negombo to the urban sanctuary of Muthurajawela which is a popular bird-watching destination. This trip takes you to the southern end of Negombo Lagoon to visit these pristine marshlands. Relax as we take you across the main lagoon to the narrow channels of the marshes where we may find a variety of Birds and Wildlife. You would be able to see birds such as Cormorants, Ducks, Egrets, Herons, Storks, Eagles, Terns, Swallows, Swifts, Kingfishers and other resident birds.

Besides the rich birdlife, you could witness Monkeys such as Toque Macaque, Prawn fishermen in the lagoon, Seagoing fishing catamarans returning home after their night out in the sea and Mangroves vegetation.

Day 2

Sigiriya

After Breakfast Proceed to Sigiriya and check-in to the hotel.

Afternoon climbs the Pidurangala rock and gets the amazing experience of the Sigiriya view.

Pidurangala rock

Pidurangala is an enormous rock located a few kilometres north of Sigiriya. The two rocks have an interlinked history: whilst King Kasyapa was building Sigiriya Rock Fortress in the 5th century, he moved monks living around Sigiriya to a new monastery on Pidurangala Rock. An ancient cave temple still houses objects from various vintages that reflect Buddhist, Hindu and western beliefs, and the stupa to the left of the temple entrance is believed to mark the spot where King Kasyapa was cremated. Pidurangala is a more challenging climb than Sigiriya, so should not be attempted by those with poor physical fitness. There is no clear path to the top: steep, uneven steps give way to an expanse of boulders and crevices that climbers must navigate in order to reach the summit. From the top, there are glorious vistas of the surrounding landscape and an incredible view of the majestic Sigiriya Rock.

Evening leisure at the hotel.

Built by King Kashyapa (477-495 A.D), the “Lion Rock” is a citadel of unusual beauty rising 200m from the scrub jungle.
