A great hotel set in the mountains, and a really good location for the next few days touring.
They also have an Eco park here where they rescue mainly injured snakes,then release them back once recovered.
We visited the Islands medieval capital which is a world heritage site and lots of the ruins are in pretty good shape. We see the ruins of the Royal palace, 4 Buddha statues in different positions, the audience hall and places of worship.
In the afternoon we drove to Minneriya National park for a jeep safari. The park is nearly 9000 hectares and we were lucky enough to see around 100 elephants in the wild along with lots of birds and reptiles. A fabulous afternoon.
The next day we drove to Sigirya rock fortress, also known as Lions Rock. A great 5th century fortress and climbed to the top. Fantastic views.
