Upon arrival at the airport you will be welcomed by your guide. You drive past rice fields and vegetable plantations to Sigiriya. Just before Sigiriya, you climb the ancient Dambulla cave temple from the 3rd century BC, a UNESCO World Heritage site high up on a rock. The fantastic murals and countless Buddhist statues in the five adjacent caves are really impressive. They look mischievous monkeys and have a great view of the surroundings. Afterwards, check into your hotel in Sigiriya and relax the rest of the day.
