One week from £1095pp - based on 2 sharing, including flights and B&B accommodation at a featured hotel

What it feels like to be there...

Sri Lanka’s Sigiriya rock is a gigantic natural wonder made even greater by human endeavour. Steps carved into its steep sides and precarious rope walkways take you up, past exquisite erotic art, to the fortress at the summit. Along the way you pass through the huge rock-hewn Lion gate, to the baths, palaces and temples beyond. 

What to do there…

Sigiriya is packed with activities and perfect for 7 days:
  • Major: Elephant-riding, Horse-riding, Mountain-biking, Bird-watching, Nature-walks, Boat-trips, Spa/Massage, Jungle-treks, Community-projects, Cultural-visits, Historical-sites.
  • Other: Safari, Cave-treks, Music, Gym/Fitness, Swimming, Tennis, Badminton, Ecology, Hot-air-ballooning Kid-friendly.

Where to stay…

5* Heritance Kandalama is an eco-design masterpiece from renowned architect Geoffrey Bawa, who cleverly blended the 160-room hotel into the rock faces and surrounding jungle, using stilts so animals can pass underneath on their way to the lake. The stylish rooms and activities concierge make the hotel a great luxury adventure base.

Some practical information worth knowing…

  • Travel: Sigiriya to Colombo airport by car takes 2-3h and it is a further 3-4h on to Godellawela on the southern coast, or a short sea-plane transfer.
  • Weather: except the cooler mountain areas, Sri Lanka is hot all year. Tropical showers are frequent (less in Dec-Mar).

What the AdventureTemples travel community says…

With dense, warm jungle all around, ancient temple complexes to the north and east, cool tea plantations in the mountains to the south and beautiful beaches just a day’s drive away, this area is packed with activities to excite your body, mind and spirit. Take time to enjoy the small things, such as a simple but refreshing jungle shower viewed from the comfort of your hotel. We'd love to hear your thoughts and suggestions.

What it feels like to be there...

Facing the Maldives on the Indian Ocean, Sri Lanka has some truly great diving to offer. But throw in elephant treks in tall rainforests, ancient temples and the freshest cup of tea in the world, and you have a truly special location. The erotic art walkway that clings to the steep sides of the Sigiriya rock is exciting in more ways than one! 

Some practical information worth knowing…

Most flights arrive at Colombo on the west of the island. This is also the best place to pick up cash for souvenirs. The weather is generally hot and humid, but cool respite can be sought up in the hills where the tea is grown.

Sunsets streak the evening sky with an orchestra of fuchsias and gold, a spectacular performance witnessed through a display of gently fluttering palms on a platform of long white beach. 5* Amanwella has an extremely privileged topography; raised above the beach between two rocky headlands it hugs the beguiling Indian Ocean in resplendent seclusion and beachside tranquillity. 

  Amanwella’s golden sand beach is located in an 800m crescent-shaped cove, fringed with palm trees. During the winter guests can enjoy snorkelling along the southern headland, protected from the ocean swell of the dry season. The rest of the year, but especially during the summer, great breaking waves make conditions perfect for private surfing lessons with Amanwella’s lifeguards.

5* Heritance Kandalama is an eco-design masterpiece from renowned architect Geoffrey Bawa in the heart of Sri Lanka's most beautiful jungle and culturally rich region. 

  Watch the hotel emerge from the lush foliage of the mountainside. Enter the fantasy ambience of luxury suspended in a natural dreamscape. Relax and let your vision blend the sapphire blue of the infinity pool with the cool grey of the Kandalama Lake, where time has stood still for 2000 years. Wander the corridors amongst the twittering swifts and befriend the monkeys lazing among the branches. Watch green blend into green from floating rooftop lawns to virgin woodlands. Gaze upon the Sigiriya rock citadel from your room window. Absorb the magic of Kandalama; transcend time and reality.

What it feels like to be there...

From the highest point on earth, up in the Himalayas, down to the many splendid coral islands in the Indian Ocean, this region can genuinely claim to have all things for all adventurers. More than that, the rich tapestry of temples, cultures, foods and people offers inspiration and intrigue at every turn. Find or lose yourself with equal ease as you revel in all that continental Asia has to offer. 

Some practical information worth knowing…

The main travel hubs in the region are the Indian cities of Mumbai and Delhi, though lots of other capitals now have direct flights from big cities around the world. The weather varies enormously, but it’s safe to say it is usually cold in the high mountains of the north and hot on the tropical beaches in the south. The Indian Ocean monsoons can make late afternoons pretty wet in warmer months too. Aim to get the currency you need at your arrival airport or the hotel because banking in rural areas can be difficult. English is very widely spoken and other European languages are known in tourist areas.
