Great chance to see the interior of the country. The nearly four hour drive to get there is a test of patience due to the vehicle and lot traffic that is constant all along the roads. The cave temple tour is interesting, make sure you dress appropriately i.e. long shorts and be prepared to take off your footwear prior to walking around the site. The climb up to the top of Sigirya Rock is not difficult and there are many opportunities to stop and rest and enjoy the view.
It's hot but worth all the steps going up.
Chatura was our driver and he was fantastic! We only had a short time to see things and we crammed so much more than expected into our day! He made our trip truly unforgettable! Highly recommend you ask for Chatura!
The tour took forever to get there. I would suggest staying in Sigirya for an overnight stay so you don't have to get up at 6am and get back by 7:30pm.
If you could't like our situation then it is still worth it. Unique place but expect a lot of traffic in general in the car.
Well worth the long drive - be prepared to walk and hike the mountain... there's no easy way to the top! The museum is also worth a visit - so don't be tempted to skip and spend your entire day outside.
Our driver was very friendly and accommodating there is no tour guide on this trip. Bring something to cover your knees, if you're a guy, or bring a pair of pants for the cave temples. The buffet meal was okay we suggested to our driver that a different restaurant be considered in the future. Definitely recommend this tour, the sites were great, but be prepared to spend a lot of time on the road.
This was a really fun day. It rained for basically the entire trip, and when we got on top of the rock it was a complete downpour. Would totally do this trip again.
long way from colombo... but once u get there u realise that it is worth it
lovely tour.. long way from colombo to sigiriya.... but once you get there you realise it is worth the long way.....
We had a lovely day with a fantastic tourist guide/driver. Sigiriya and the cave temples were amazing and our guide provided us wide knowledge about Sri Lanka overall and about the visited places. I would highly recommend this trip for any traveller. Everything was great and well organized.
