Sigiriya and elephants

A travel blog entry by dawnread101


An exiting day today, we had Sigiriya to climb and an elephant safari booked!
We were raring to climb Sigiriya at 9am, it was so hot, even at that time. It was not too bad a climb as it was all steps and it was quite slow moving due to the amount of people climbing up. I will confess though it was pretty horrible in places as it was climbing up …

The Sri Lanka Tour Begins at Polonnawura

A travel blog entry by mknox


Day 5: Like any New Years day you appreciate a wee sleep in. Fortunately our next stop was only 1 hour up the road so we headed off at a respectable 9.30. Our NY day activity was cycling through the small villages around Giritale Tank (reservoir built in 7th century). Cycling around the waterways and villages of Giritale. This was a lovely way to spend the morning and early afternoon, just watching people as they went about daily life, bathing in river and greeting kids who ...
