Climb the Sigiriya Rock.

Climbing the Sigiriya Rock you’ll need two or three hours to explore Sigiriya Rock, there are about 1200 steps. it’s best to visit in the early morning or late afternoon, when the crowds are less dense and the temperature is cooler.

like a kind of Asian Ayers Rock. The site is best avoided at weekends (especially Sun) and on public holidays, when its narrow staircases and walkways can become unbearably congested. The ascent of the rock is a stiff climb but less gruelling than you might imagine when standing at the bottom of the towering cliff-face, and sufferers from vertigo might find some sections unpleasant. Guides can usually be hired at the entrance.

Sigiriya well deserves being a World Heritage Site. On top, the remains of an ancient city, the best preserved bits being the water reservoirs dug into the rock. At the base, remarkable 1700 year-old water gardens
