Pidurangala is a Buddhist sacred place that has been built in the mountain area and it is 340 m in height from Sea level. This can be found in the north from Sigiriya. 

Pidurangala Temple has been offered to Buddhist monks in ancient times. Climbing to the Pidurangala rock is more strenuous than climbing Sigiriya.

Hiriwadunna is a beautiful village shaded on either side by a dry zone shrub forest, with unpaved gravel paths and humble village folk will give you a chance to witness the environment of a typical Sri Lankan village life and spot a few unique species of birds. 

A ride on a bullock cart along a dirt track and through rice paddies down to the picturesque Hiriwadunna Lake will leave you with a sense of peacefulness. This is an unforgettable experience for visitors and will most definitely be one of the places they feel most at peace, during the time spent in Sri Lanka.

Pick up from your hotel

After your breakfast, we will pick you up from your hotel in Kandy.


Then, we take you to Pidurangala situated in Sigiriya before sunrise. Once you reach the top you will have the best seat in the house (the whole of Sigiriya) for not only the sunrise but also for Sigiriya Rock.

The sun doesn’t rise directly over the Sigiriya Rock but it was still a beautiful way to start the morning watching the sun light up the valley.


After having your lunch we take you to Hiriwadunna, a village where trees outnumber people and enjoy a trek across natural trails, a catamaran boat trip, and a bullock cart ride.

Also, you will be able to see the views of Sigiriya in the distance.

Local Village

Upon reaching the shore you will be escorted to the house of a village local where your authentic Sri Lankan lunch will be cooked from freshly grown produce.

You will also climb to a treehouse which is used as a watch.

End of the tour

At the end of the day we take you back to your hotel.
