Negombo Rural Perspective

Negombo is known by the nickname of "Little Rome" due to its ornate churches. The exchange of fish at dawn, prawn farms, beached catamarans, the kids playing on pink sandy beaches, is really what keeps Negombo’s heart beating. The boat tour through the Dutch canal, takes you through the idyllic rice paddy and coconut plantation landscape, dissolve into the tiny warren of streets along the extensive network of canals surrounded by extensive vegetation. The lagoon attracts a variety of birds such as cormorants, gulls, herons, and other shorebirds. The canal divided the city in two along 100 km and was the communication channel to transport supplies between peoples and to transport spices and gems; they can lead you back to old-world life and unexpected treasures. Although the canal existed before the time of colonization, the Dutch amplified and changed it in according with the development of the time, hence its name. We will stop along the way for a snack and recharge before continuing with the city tour, seeing the famous fish market and knowing its important buildings of the colonial period. We proceed to the city by typical Sri Lankan's train; it is an experience for all those who want to know the country from a different perspective.

In To The Wild

Early morning we will attend the awakening of nature. The 4x4 jeep we will lead for a wild ride when the animals begin to stretch out. During a visit, it is not unusual to see whole herds of adults and young elephants– feeding or bathing and playing in the water! In addition to this main attraction - about 400 Asian elephants-, the park is home to many water buffalo, water monitor lizards, sambar deer, and several species of primates. Its 119.00 km ² attract different bird species, peacocks, pelicans, birds of prey, and migratory waders, being an exciting location for bird enthusiasts. An exhilarating safari around vast plains of Udawalawe, the Sri Lankan national park that best rivals the savanna reserves of Africa.

An experience that an elephant lover would never forget. After, the lunch will be at a restaurant in Udawalawe..

Mystical Rocks

Early morning we go to turn back the clock to the V century AD at The Eighth Wonder of the Ancient World. Sigiriya is one of the most emblematic places; this World Heritage is a feat of engineering and vision. Fortress rebuilt by the parricidal King Kashyapa [477-495 AD] still has the remains of an extensive network of gardens, reservoirs and cisterns. Halfway up the rock, you can see rock paintings which have brought universal acclaim to the site of Sigiriya - 'The Maidens of the Clouds', 21 non-identified female figures, comparable to the most beautiful creations of Ajanta. 'Lion's Rock', which dominates the jungle from all sides was completely covered by buildings during their glory. Sigiriya is a spiritual and sensual place, a mixture of military grandeur and mystical and sacred elements.

On completion lunch in Sigiriya and drive to Dambulla, another of the seven sites declared World Heritage Site in Sri Lanka. A complex of caves with temples inside, with 160 statues and over 2000 m² of murals on the walls depicting the life of Buddha.
