    Stop At: Pidurangala Rock, Pidurangala,Sigiriya, Sigiriya 21120 Sri Lanka

    Pidurangala Rock is adjacent to Sigiriya Rock and is the best viewing spot of Sigiriya Rock as it is only slightly lower. Pidurangala is a popular spot for sunrise as you can enjoy 360-degree views of not only the valleys but also Sigiriya Rock. At the base of Pidurangala Rock, you will find Pidurangala Sigiri Rajamaha Viharaya, which is a white temple. Rock formations, a reclining Buddha and even a couple of cobras can be spotted on the way up. It’s shaded most of the way up, so it’s not too difficult of a hike. Sit at the top for a while and just take a look at the panoramic views. Unlike sigiriya it isn’t at all busy, so you can sit down, chill and watch the queues develop on the stairway in the distance of the famous Lion Rock!

    Duration: 3 hours

    Stop At: Sigiriya The Ancient Rock Fortress, Sigiriya 21120 Sri Lanka

    Sigiriya Rock, or Lion Rock as it’s also known, is famous for its palace ruins on top of a massive 200 meter high rock surrounded by the remains of gardens, reservoirs and other structures.The rock itself is a lava plug left over from an ancient long extinct volcano, attracting thousands of tourists to Sigiriya to climb and take in the views from the summit. Rising from the lush jungle cover of Sri Lanka's central plains, Sigiriya Rock is truly a breathtaking sight to behold. Thrust upwards from an otherwise flat landscape and often skirted by a veil of mist that shrouds it in mystery, is often referred to as the eighth wonder of the world.
