Your Destination

With 8 Unesco World Heritage Sites to be found on such a small area of land and a 2,000-year-old culture, Sri Lanka is as fascinating as it is beautiful. A destination that is often skipped by many a traveller on their trips to India or Asia, Sri Lanka remains one of the best-kept Indo-Asian secrets. 

Visit the ancient sites and marvel over their legendary temples, or see the sacred home of the world’s oldest living tree, Anuradhapura. Take a safari tour in one of Sri Lanka’s national parks to encounter elephants, leopards, water buffaloes, and exotic birds, or spend the day relaxing on the dazzlingly white, often untrod, beaches. Try your hand at a little surfing or retreat up into the Sri Lankan hills to experience a more temperate climate and the lavish greenery of the tea plantations. Here, you can trek through the rainforests with an experienced guide or simply take in the breathtaking vistas on a spectacular train ride.  

With fabulously flavoursome food and a vast array of culturally rich experiences to delve into, Sri Lanka promises to be one of your best-loved travel destinations, where the charm of the people will simply enchant you.

Following a leisurely breakfast, leave the hotel in time to witness a baby elephant feed at the Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage at 1.15 pm ( Approx Travel Time from Colombo to Pinnawala - 02 to 02 ½ Hours drive).

Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage is a home for young Elephants who have been displaced or lost from their natural habitat. The orphanage is located at Pinnawala village in the Sabaragamuwa province of Sri Lanka. Pinnawela Elephant Orphanage is the best place for an up close and personal experience with the world’s largest land mammals!

Following breakfast, you will leave for the Sigiriya Rock Fortress where you have the opportunity to climb 1200 steps and admire the fabulous frescoes on the walls (Approx Travel time from Dambulla to Sigiriya: 20 - 30 min drive). The Sigiriya Rock Fortress is known as the 8th wonder of the world. This rock fortress was built by King Kasyapa in the 5th century A.D. and was a royal citadel for more than 18 years. The summit of the rock, with an area of nearly one hectare, was the site of the palace and the outer wall was built on the very brink of the precipice. The UNESCO sponsored Central Cultural Fund has restored the Sigiriya 5th century water gardens to their former glory. On completion of this part of the day, you will proceed on a sightseeing tour of Polonnaruwa (Approx Travel time from Sigiriya to Polonnaruwa 01 - 01 ½ hrs drive).
Polonnaruwa was established as the capital by King Vijayabahu I after Anuradhapura had been invaded in the late 10th century. However, it was under King Parakramabu I, who ruled in the late 11th century, that Polonnaruwa became a magnificent walled city. He built the vast reservoir, Parakrama Samudra (the Sea of Parakrama) which is still in use today, and ordered the construction of monasteries, temples, palaces, bathing pools and Buddhist statues, all set in a forested park surrounded by moats. During his period of rule, it is said that Sri Lanka was known as the Granary of the East. On Completion of this fascinating cultural tour, you will return to your hotel and spend the rest of the day at leisure, enjoying the amenities on offer (Approx Travel time from Polonnaruwa to Dambulla 01to 01 ½ hrs drive). You will then enjoy an overnight stay at Amaya Lake 4* or Similar.
Day 4 DAMBULLA / MATALE / KANDY

After breakfast, check out from the hotel and proceed to Kandy. En route, be sure to visit the majestic Dambulla cave temple (Approx Travel time from Dambulla to Dambulla Cave Temple: 30 to 40 minutes drive). The Dambulla Cave Temple is a vast isolated rock mass and it was here that king Valagambahu took refuge in the 01st century B.C. when fleeing from his enemies. He later turned the caves into a rock temple. The Golden Temple of Dambulla has been the centre of pilgrimage for Buddhists and Hindus alike for 22 centuries. It is Sri Lanka’s most popular historic site. The Cave monastery, home to Buddhist monks is covered with exquisite 2,000-year-old murals depicting the life and times of the Lord Buddha. The shrines also house a collection of 157 statues of Buddha in various sizes and poses, including a 15 meter long reclining Buddha and vividly coloured frescoes on the walls and ceiling, making this the largest antique painted surface in the world. Following your temple visit, you will proceed to Kandy with a visit to a Spice Garden in Matale en route (Approx Travel time from Dambulla to Matale: 01 to 01 ½ hrs).
Matale is famous for its batik production and spice gardens. Batik is an ancient art of painting cloth and today Sri Lanka is among the world leaders in the design of batik. Batik galleries and factories offer a variety of batik from simple single-coloured designs to intricate multi-coloured masterpieces. For centuries, spices have been one of Sri Lanka's most celebrated exports. Spices are mostly grown in home gardens (as a home industry) and used not only to flavour food but also for medicine and cosmetics. On completion of this part of the tour, you will continue to Kandy (Approx Travel time from Matale to Kandy: 01 to 01 ½ hour).

Kandy is a charming city. As the Hill Capital and last stronghold of the Sinhala Kings, it retains an aura of grandeur, which time has not affected. Encircled by hills, with a tranquil lake in its centre, it is the site of the renowned "Temple of the Tooth". Kandy and its satellite villages are the centre of the island’s handicraft industry and its traditional dances are the most spectacular in the country. On completion, you will proceed to your hotel in Kandy and spend the rest of the day at leisure, enjoying the hotel's amenities. You will then have an overnight stay at OZO Kandy 4* or similar.
Day 5 KANDY

After breakfast at the hotel, you will proceed to the Royal Botanical Gardens in Kandy. This was originally the King’s own royal pleasure garden, but was later converted into a botanic garden and opened to the public. At the Royal Botanical Gardens at ‘Peradeniya’, you can treat your eyes to an amazing, wide and rare collection of tropical and temperate, exotic and indigenous flora, and an orchid house with the largest collection in Asia (Approx. Travel time from hotel to Royal Botanical gardens: 20 - 30 Mins drive). In the late afternoon, you will then make a visit to The Temple of the Tooth Relic, which is located in the royal palace complex, housing the Relic of the tooth of Buddha. Following that, you will witness a Cultural Dance performance in the evening. These classical dance forms are associated with the performance of various rituals and ceremonies which are centuries old and are based on the folk religion and folk beliefs going back to times before the advent and acceptance of Buddhism by the Sinhalese people. You will return to the hotel and spend the rest of the day at leisure, before enjoying an overnight stay at OZO Kandy 4* or similar.
Day 6 KANDY / BALAPITIYA

Following a fairly long journey, you will proceed to the beach for a much-deserved relaxation extension (Approx Travel time from Kandy to Balapitiya: 04 ½ to 05 hrs).
