Classic Double Room (Double occupancy), Breakfast is included. Price is from AED 2,050
Day 1: Meet and assist on arrival at airport by representative, transfer to Sigiriya; via Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage and overnight stay in Sigiriya.
As you enter the 25-acre coconut property, do not be surprised to witness baby elephants being bottle fed or moving around freely causing absolutely no harm to anyone. It is rightly a sincere sight to observe how these gentle giants - orphaned and sometimes three-legged - are taken care of since 1975 at Pinnawela Elephant Orphanage. Up to date, over 20 calves have been born here, and it is surprising to hear that some of its inmates have even seen their grandchildren during the past few decades! Watch as they feed at 9:15 am, 1:15 pm & 5:00 pm and take a river bath twice a day at 10:00 am & 2:00 pm respectively for an experience that could never be felt anywhere else on earth!
Commonly referred to as the ‘Cultural Triangle’, the central plains area boasts ruined temples and ancient cities combined with national parks and glistening reservoirs. UNESCO World Heritage Sites include the striking rock fortress of Sigiriya, Dambulla’s Royal Rock Temple and crumbling archaeological treasures of Polonnaruwa. The stunning setting and historic interest mean a stay in this region is sure to be a highlight of any trip to Sri Lanka.
Day 2: After Breakfast, you’ll be taken to Sigiriya, also known as the ‘Lion Rock’ (25km / approx. 45 min).
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is one of Sri Lanka’s major attractions. A spectacular pillar of rock visible from miles around, geologically Sigiriya is a hardened magma plug of an extinct volcano. Historically, the origins of the remains are disputed and thought to have been either a royal fortress built under the reign of King Kashyapa (477 - 495 AD) or a Buddhist monastery.
You might like to start your visit with a visit to the Sigiriya Museum to learn more about the site, before wandering through the vast landscaped gardens to the base of the rock. The walk to the top is steep with many steps and there are some sections where the path or staircase is very narrow with steep drops protected by fences. We do not recommend this for those without a head for heights or the less mobile. The hike up and down again will take 1.5 to 2.5 hours depending on your fitness.
You will pass beautiful frescoes and a sheer ‘mirror wall’ before arriving at the massive stone lion’s paws, which lend the rock its nickname ‘Lion Rock’. The old stairway to the top led through the mouth of a crouching lion but today only the huge paws remain giving an indication of the massive proportions of the head. The summit, covering an area of 1.6 hectares, was originally completely covered by buildings, but only remains of the royal citadel can be seen today.
After visiting Sigiriya, you’ll be taken to Trincomalee.
The beaches around Trincomalee are used for surfing, scuba diving and fishing and whale watching. Trincomalee (more commonly known as 'Trinco') is a prime tourism venue which is located on the northeast coast of Sri Lanka and offers some of the country's most attractive beaches such as 'Uppuveli' and 'Nilaveli'.
Overnight Stay at Trincomalee
Day 3: After Breakfast, you will visit the pigeon island and you are able to do scuba diving as well.
It is situated in the Eastern Province, north of Trincomalee, one kilometer off the Nilaveli coast; a stretch of beach known as the most beautiful in the island. The Pigeon Island Marine Sanctuary is a unique natural phenomenon made up of two Islands called the Large and Small Pigeon Islands.
In case you’re not diver you will be able to go whale and Dolphin watching.
Overnight Stay at Trincomalee
Day 4: After Breakfast, transfer to Kandy, overnight stay in Kandy
Sri Lanka’s second largest city, Kandy was the capital of the last Sinhalese Kingdom and enjoys a scenic setting around a lake surrounded by green hills. Home to the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic, said to house Buddha’s tooth, each August the city also hosts the spectacular Perahera festival featuring dancers, fire breathers and lavishly decorated elephants.
Late afternoon you will head to a local hall to watch a show of traditional Sri Lankan music, dance and drumming. Afterwards you’ll visit the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic, known locally as Sri Dalada Maligawa, the most sacred temple in the whole of Sri Lanka. This important shrine boasts intricate carvings and beautiful Sri Lankan art. During the evening ‘puja’ throngs of pilgrims visit the temple to line up to glimpse the golden casket said to hold the sacred relic and to make offerings of flowers.
Day 5: After Breakfast, transfer to Colombo. Overnight stay in Colombo
Sri Lanka’s sprawling capital is developing rapidly with a host of new hotels, smart boutiques and cosmopolitan restaurants. This is a city of contrasts where serene Buddhist temples and colonial churches nestle amid ramshackle streets and shiny office blocks. The frantic Pettah markets and Paradise Road Studio offer interesting shopping opportunities and no visit is complete without a stroll along coastal Galle Face Green.
Enjoy an evening city tour of Colombo. Start your tour in the old fort district, passing the President’s house and the old Dutch hospital, now a shopping and restaurant complex. Take a walk around Pettah market, still as bustling as it would have been in the late 19th Century and pass the Red Mosque, one of the oldest on the island. Drive on past the old St John’s Fish Market, now a gold souk, to Wolvendaal Church, the country’s oldest Protestant church and once the burial ground for the elite Dutch.
Day 6: After Breakfast, transfer to airport for departure
