Climbing a Rock Fortress in Sri Lanka

Climbing a Rock Fortress in Sri Lanka

If you’ve been up Huayna Picchu and loved it you may want to start considering a trip to Sri Lanka as your next destination for its fantastic rock fortress – Sigirya. A UNESCO heritage site, this commanding palace was built in the 5th century. 1,200 stairs take you to the top with the final push to the summit guarded by the paws of a giant lion. The top offers sweeping views of the surrounding countryside, ruins to explore, and a birds eye view of the oldest gardens in Asia. After your early morning hike, you can enjoy some Sri Lankan delicacies prepared by a local family that will allow you to sit and imagine what life was like when this palace in the sky was at the height of its glory.
