DAY 01 / 02 AIRPORT - PINNAWALA - SIGIRIYA

The palace is located in the district of Matale nearby the town of habarana on a massive rock column 370 meters above the sea level. Sigiriya rock plateau, formed from magma of an extinct volcano, is 200 meters in hight and surrounded by the forest. Its view astonishes the visitors with the unique harmony between the nature and human imagination. The fortress complex includes remnants of a ruined palace, surrounded by an extensive network of fortifications, vast gardens, ponds, canals, alleys and fountains. The surrounding territories of Sigiriya were inhibited for several thousand years. Since 3th century BC the rocky plateau of Sigiriya served as a monastery. In the second half of the 5th century king Kasyapa decided to construct a royal residence here.

DAY 03 SIGIRIYA - MATALE - KANDY

Historical records suggest that Kandy was first established by the King Wickramabahu (1357-1374 CE) near the Watapuluwa area, north of the present city, and it was named Senkadagalapura at the time, although some scholars suggest the name ‘Katubulu Nuwara’ may also have been used. The origin of the more popular name for the city, Senkadagala, could have been from a number of sources. These include naming it after a brahmin named Senkanda who lived in a cave near the city, after a queen of King Wickramabahu named Senkanda or after a coloured stone named Senkadagala.

DAY 05 / 06 BENTOTA - GALLE - BENTOTA

Basking on the southern coast of Sri Lanka in the bay of Galle, the Fort was first built by the Portuguese in 1588 before being extensively fortified by the Dutch in the mid 1600s. Recognized by UNESCO for its cultural heritage value, the Fort was declared a World Heritage Site in 1988 as a unique exposition of "an urban ensemble which illustrates the interaction of European architecture and South Asian traditions from the 16th to the 19th centuries." .

Whether on a‘guided walk or strolling along the narrow streets, today you will see clear and well maintained evidence of the Dutch influence. Although these days there are some notable differences to 400 years ago.

Today a Museum occupies the stables; jewellery shops abound; cafes emerge from behind restored columns; interior design shops mingle with book stores and fashion outlets; and to cap it all the Dutch Governor’s residence is now the luxurious Amangalla Hotel.

Accommodation has also changed and there is something for every budget and preference within these historic ramparts .

Galle is the cultural capital of the southern coast of this magical island and along with the seven other UNESCO sites in Sri Lanka, Galle Fort is a must see for everyone.

Colombo, Sri Lanka‘s bustling commercial hub, is located on the country’s west coast and with a population of between 800,000 and one million (estimates vary) is by far the country’s biggest city, as well as the most developed. Its natural harbour at the mouth of the Kelani River was a magnet for successive traders and conquerors – initially the Arab merchants, then Portuguese, Dutch and British imperialists.
