Stop At: Ancient City of Sigiriya, Sigiriya Site between the towns of Dambulla and Habarane, Sigiriya 21120 Sri Lanka

One place not to miss is Pidurangula(Rs 500;h 5am-6.30pm)rock, the temples of which actually predate Sigiriya. This prominent rock about 1km north of the Sigiriya site offers amazing views of Sigiriya from its wide summit. It’s a 20-minute hike up to the top, past several small temples, a 12.5m reclining Buddha and a fnal tricky scramble over boulders. Most people come at sunset (bring a torch for the trip down), but a sunrise visit is equally beautiful and much less crowded. A return three-wheeler costs around Rs 700, including waiting time. If you explore the dirt roads north then west of here you’ll fnd several water tanks that offer lovely reflected views of both rocks. Another good longer bike or scooter ride follows back roads for 25km to Dambulla via the Kandalama Wewa reservoir. En route you can stop at the Dakinigiriya Vihara(Kaludiya Pokuna)F , 2.5km of the main road down a dirt track past the Paradise Resort. Trails take you past a stupa, the standing monolithic stones of a prayer hall, several rock inscriptions and caves, a small tank and many fabulous trees. It’ll likely be only you and the monkeys here.

Duration: 3 hours
