Reisroute

Scenic Beauty of Sri Lanka - 9 Days - Comfort

Day 1: Arrival in Colombo Airport – Negombo

Welcome to Sri Lanka – a charmingly beautiful country where ancient cultural immersion and beautiful scapes awaits you.

Upon arrival in the airport you will be met by our representative and transferred to Negombo. Negombo is approx. 20 minutes' drive from the airport embracing slow life and beachfront location. For newly arrived travellers it is often a welcomed alternative to the hectic and happening Colombo.

Check in to your hotel and rest for a few hours before capturing the streets of
Negombo. You may visit the colonial remains of the Dutch period, a
Buddhist temple and a catholic church. Get close to slow life in the local fishing village; walk the lively fish market, and the bustling bazaar. Overnight at a small boutique hotel.

Overnight: Negombo.

Optional: Do a Boat trip through the Dutch canal, lagoon and sea.
Please note: If you arrive late in the night on day 01 you may go around to see Negombo next morning on day 02, before departing to Sigiriya.

Day 2: Negombo – Sigiriya

Having acclimatized to a new country and new customs, you are ready to venture inlands to the ancient scapes of Sri Lanka.

Start with a slow breakfast and enjoy a cup of hot Sri Lankan tea. Then transfer to Sigiriya (approx. 200 km and 4-5 hours of drive) where you will check in to your next hotel which is a little hidden gem of a place, where you can relax in touch with nature, but with all of the modern conveniences you need.

Late in the afternoon/early evening when the sun cools down a bit, start your excursion to Sigiriya. Climb the 5th century Sigiriya Rock Fortress – an UNESCO world heritage site, built by King Kashyapa (477-495 AD). The 'Lion Rock' is a citadel of unusual beauty rising 200 metres from the scrub jungle. The rock was the innermost stronghold of the 70 hectare fortified town. A moat, rampart, and extensive gardens including the renowned water gardens ring the base of the rock.
Visit the world-renowned frescoes of the 'Heavenly Maidens' of Sigiriya, which are in a sheltered pocket of the rock approached by a spiral stairway. These frescoes are painted in earth pigments on plaster.

Overnight: Sigiriya.
Driving time: Approx. 200 km / 4-5 hours.

Day 3: Sigiriya–Dambulla – Minneriya–Sigiriya

From a rock fortress to a rock temple – another day of cultural explorations in striking landscapes awaits you.

Have your breakfast and transfer to Dambulla, which is about an hour's drive from Sigiriya. Here you will find the World Heritage Site of Dambulla Rock Temple – the most impressive of Sri Lanka's cave temples. Built by King Walagambahu in the 1st century B.C. the complex of five caves holds over 2000 sq. metres of painted walls and ceilings. This makes it the largest area of paintings found in the world. It contains over 150 images of Buddha of which the largest is spanning 14 metres and is a colossal figure of Buddha carved out of rock.

Stop for lunch in town and late in the afternoon you will visit MinneriyaNational Park. Covering 8890 hectare, the park consists of mixed evergreen forest and scrub areas and is home to Sri Lanka's favourites such as sambar deer, leopards and elephants. However the central feature of the park is the ancient Minneriya Tank (built in 3rdcentury AD by King Mahasena). During the dry season (June to September), this tank is an incredible place to observe the elephants that come to bathe and graze on the grasses as well as the huge flocks of birds (cormorants and painted storks to name but a few) that come to fish in the shallow waters.

Overnight: Sigiriya.
Driving time: Approx. 1 hour per way

Day 4: Sigiriya – Trincomalee

After breakfast at your hotel, you will proceed from Sigiriya to Northeast coast town Trincomalee.

The city is well known for its natural harbour and with its location in the beautiful and magnificent bay of Trincomalee it is one of the finest natural harbours in the world. In the Northern outskirts of the city, the small fishing villages of Uppuveli and Nilaveliare considered to be some of the finest beaches in Sri Lanka – broad and almost deserted as they are. Also in the area you will find the hot springs at Kanniyai, said to possess therapeutic qualities. You will find the Koneswaram temple, dedicated to Lord Shiva, and the Swamy Rock also known locally as lover's leap.

Before driving towards your resort you will stop at the town market to take in the local fisherman life. You may get close to the small alleys in between the shops, which are actually homes of the fishermen. These alleys open up to the sea and you will find fishermen families working to sort the fishes in the nets or drying them in the sun during the day.

The name "Kandy" conjures visions of splendour and magnificence. Many of the legends, traditions and folklore are still lovingly kept alive.

In the evening visit the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic – a golden roofed Buddhist temple that houses Sri Lanka's most sacred Buddhist relic – a tooth of the Buddha. And though it is not possible to see the actual tooth as it is kept in a gold casket shaped like a stupa, you will feel the sacred ambience and take in the colours, the gilded gifts and the shrines that comprise the temple complex.
Late in the evening you will experience a Cultural Show. Some find this funny, while others find it spectacular.
