Ritigala Forest Monastery | Hike through isolated forest reserves and explore ancient monastery ruins steeped in mythology and mystery.
Sigiriya / Lion Rock Fortress | Probably the most visited iconic site in the country, the rock fortress is both historically significant and a marvel of ancient construction, being built on a massive rock column 660 feet off the ground.
Dambulla Cave Temple | Dating back to the 2nd century BC, this cave has stood the test of time and most of its ceiling and wall frescoes are intact.
Popham’s Arboretum | Filled with rare trees and visited by many of the forests residents, the arboretum is the perfect place to learn about Sri Lanka’s less famous but no less interesting plants and wildlife. *For a more magical experience, stay for the night tour.
Pidurangala Rock | If you’re looking for a challenging climb, this is it. The rock is widely considered to have better views than Sigiriya but requires a higher level of fitness to hike.
