Tastes of Sigiriya Fortress

Tastes of Sigiriya Fortress

Climb the 5th century Sigiriya Rock fortress that is a UNESCO World Heritage site, built by King Kashyapa (477-495). The spectacular citadel of Sigiriya rises sheer and impregnable out of the plains of the dry zone, a remarkable archeological site made unforgettable by its dramatic setting. A moat, rampart, and extensive gardens including the renowned water gardens ring the base of the rock and the frescoes of the ‘Heavenly Maidens’ of Sigiriya. As you ascend you’ll stop for a stylish rest in two shaded locations where your porter will have laid out cushions and various tasty Sri Lankan delicacies!
