Day 15:                 Bentota – Sigiriya

  • Sigiriya Rock Fortress (UNESCO-World Heritage)
  • Dambulla Cave Temple (UNESCO-World Heritage)

Sigiriya Rock Fortress

The 200-metre-high Lion Rock is set in idyllic ancient gardens, surrounded by the remains of a former palace complex. The fort is Sri Lanka’s most important and most visited UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The history of the site dates back to 7,000 years ago, when King Ravana founded this amazing complex. The original palace, researchers suspect, lies undiscovered inside the rock. It is said that – from time to time -, otherwise closed gaps in the rock can be seen standing open…

The rock palace experienced a second heyday in the 5th century under King Kasyapa. The king’s son used the rock as a refuge from his brother and had elaborate buildings, a water supply system that was pioneering for the time and ingenious water gardens, which can still be seen today.

Halfway up the climb, visitors reach the “Cloud Maidens”: well-preserved murals made of natural paint that are several centuries old. Those who have made it up the narrow spiral staircase with its 1,860 steps to the plateau, are rewarded with a pleasantly cooling breeze and a fantastic view over the surrounding area.

Day 17:                 Sigiriya – Kandy

  • Temple of the Tooth (UNESCO World Heritage)
  • Historical Centre
  • Spice Garden

Temple of the tooth

The spiritual heart of Sri Lanka beats in Kandy. The Temple of the Tooth is the holiest site for Buddhists in Sri Lanka and also the most beautiful Buddhist temple in the country. A tooth of Buddha is kept as a relic in the main temple.

According to tradition, the owner of the relic has the right to rule over Sri Lanka. Three times a day, the room with the shrine where the tooth is kept, is opened to pilgrims and visitors in a puja ceremony. Monks in saffron robes and women in white dresses pass the shrine. Here you can place flowers – as the locals do – and light an oil lamp.

Kandy Market & Old Town

The busy old town of Kandy, with its colonial architecture and bustling streets, invites you to take a leisurely stroll. A rich selection of cafés and restaurants offer the opportunity to watch life in the lanes while enjoying a good cup of Ceylon tea.

In the bustling market and narrow bazaar, you will experience the haggling of the traders at their lush, colourful stalls with exotic fruits and vegetables, but also with high-quality handicrafts and antique jewellery. Get dressed in a colourful sari at one of the stalls and feel as stylish as a local!

Spice Garden

Welcome to the world of spices! Along the Spice Road, between Dambulla and Kandy, lie the traditional spice and herb gardens. Here you can see, smell and feel how pepper, cinnamon, vanilla and cocoa beans grow and how they are used in food, cosmetics or medicine. Admire cardamom plants, cinnamon trees and pineapple bushes!

Day 19:                 Kandy – Hatton – Kitulgala

  • Trainride 1st class Kandy – Hatton
  • Visit of a tea factory
  • Trip to Kitulgala

Kandy – Hatton Trainride

The train ride from Kandy to Hatton leads through the enchanting landscape marked by the green of the dense tea plantations. The rolling hills fly by like paintings. The route is considered one of the most beautiful railway lines in the world.

Hatton

The small town of Hatton is located in the central highlands amidst endless tea plantations. The best tea in Sri Lanka grows in the area around Hatton: Maskeliya. Only tea to which this tea is added is real Ceylon tea!

Learn about the cultivation and processing of the different tea varieties in Sri Lanka in a traditional tea factory. Walk through the vast tea plantations or become a tea picker yourself and see how arduous this work is. At the subsequent “High Tea” you can taste the different tea varieties!

In the evening you will reach the jungle village of Kitulgala.

Day 21:                 Kitulgala – Airport

  • Kitulgala
  • Pilikuttawa Rajamaha Viharaya
  • Airport

Pilikuttawa Rajamaha Viharaya

Pilikuttuwa is an ancient Sinhalese forest monastery where secluded monks still live. The magical place is rarely visited by tourists and is therefore a real insider tip for authentic experiences of Sinhalese culture.

The 99 monastery caves are spread over a wildly romantic forest area of more than 80 hectares. If you are lucky, a monk will personally guide you through the caves and over the grounds, explaining the significance of the prehistoric writings, wall paintings and cave dwellings. From the rock plateau you have a magnificent view of the surrounding jungle forests.

Now it is time to say goodbye! An exciting Sri Lanka round trip is coming to an end. Hopefully you will leave our beautiful island well rested and with many unforgettable impressions!

Day 16:                 Ritigala – Habarana

  • Ritigala Forest Minastery
  • Farmtour & Catamaran Ride

Ritigala Forest Monastery

Hidden in the Ritigala Nature Reserve, the ruins of an ancient 1st century forest monastery, romantically overgrown by the jungle, awaits visitors. For many centuries, monks of the reclusive Pansukulika brotherhood lived in the complex.

The grounds and buildings of the archaeological site are still visible: an Ayurvedic monastic hospital, meditation paths and the remains of a gigantic bathing pond built of stones. The grinding stones for the leaves of Ayurvedic medicinal herbs are still there. They were used to prepare medicinal baths. Hot water facilities were also present.

Particularly striking: the ornately decorated urinal stones of the monks. Here the ascetic clergy clearly expressed what they thought of jewellery and art!

The enchanted complex once served as scenery for part of the “Indiana Jones” movies. A special treat for young visitors: the rocky path through the jungle and the huge, ancient trees with their vines.

Visit to a farm village

The tour takes you to the centre of the island. In an authentic ox cart you will visit a traditional farming village. The farmers guide you through their vegetable garden and over the fields, show their daily handicraft work and describe their problems with wild elephants and the consequences of climate change.

The village women prepare a traditional lunch meal, which is eaten in the farm workers’ hut. Young visitors are allowed to eat in the tree house, which is used at night to spot predatory elephants! Here everyone is allowed to eat with their hands!

A catamaran ride across the reservoir completes the visit.

Day 18:                 Kandy – Pinnawala

  • Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage

Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage

The elephant orphanage at Pinnawala near Kandy is one of the most popular attractions in Sri Lanka. Orphaned elephants are taken in here and raised with human help. The resulting artificial herd now comprises about 100 animals. The latest attraction is the twin elephants born in September 2021!

Observing the imposing pachyderms up close during morning feeding and the subsequent “pool party” in the river, is an impressive experience for young & old.

Royal Botanic Gardens

The Royal Botanic Garden of Peradeniya is the largest botanical garden in Sri Lanka. During a walk through the exotic park with its more than 4,000 plant species, visitors experience the splendour of the colourful, tropical plant world.

Strange species such as the “toothbrush tree” grow here, monkeys romp through the garden and huge, sleeping flying foxes hang upside down from the trees, so there is plenty to discover for young and old.

Day 20:                 Kitulgala

  • Kitulgala
  • Adventure Sports (optinal)
  • Aberdeen Falls

Kitulgala

Now you will experience real jungle feeling! Kitulgala is a world of wonders with a myriad of colourful plants, birds and insects on all levels! The forest is full of life and the game of light and shadow through the dense, tall trees is amazing.

Adventure sports

Adventure-seekers will have a special pleasure in the challenges offered in this area: Abseiling, Canyoning, Whitewaterrafting and Jungle Camping!

The Kelani River offers some of the most exciting white water rafting sections in Sri Lanka. The crystal clear water of the river, which meanders through a rocky gorge above Kitulgala, is suitable for both rafting professionals and beginners. Level 2 to 3+ rapids with such promising names as “Butter Crunch”, “Killer Falls” or “Virgins Beast” await courageous venturers.

Aberdeen Falls

After all the adventures, a relaxing picnic awaits you at one of the most idyllic places in Sri Lanka. The 98 m high Aberdeen Falls are among the most picturesque waterfalls. As they are a little hidden, they are rarely visited. The view from the terrace down into the valley is breathtaking.

The natural pool at the bottom of the multi-level waterfall is framed by imposing rocks and hidden caves. The clear water of the basin invites you to take a refreshing swim and you can enjoy a picnic on the shore with a view of the impressive natural spectacle.

Belilena Cave

The winding Belilena cave system is hidden in the middle of the jungle, where traces of human habitation some 30,000 years old have been found. The natural cave is not only interesting for hobby archaeologists, who find remains of human skeletons and ancient dinosaur fossils here. Eyewitnesses have reported seeing dwarf humans in the cave. Objects were also found that indicate the existence of mysterious inhabitants…

The adventurous cave expedition leads along a narrow path through the impassable jungle with many wild animals and exotic birds. The entrance to the cave lies behind the cascades of a waterfall.
