Half Day

PIDURANGALA ROCK CLIMBING

 

Sigiriya might steal the show, but Pidurangala Rock is the one to absolutely hike in Sri Lanka. You might not have heard about Sigiriya’s neighbouring rock. This Rock might not have quite the same historical significance as Sigiriya, but the view from the top is arguably even more impressive.

Mini 2 pax

ITINERARY


Day 1 By 5:30am or 4pm, we will pick you up to take the direction of un-famous un-crowed Pidurangal Rock. Make sure you bring a sarong or scarf, as you’ll need to cover your shoulders when you walk through the temple ground. Start the steady fairly ascent hike, walking next to a steep rock wall. There are some stairs and large boulders to step across until you get to a few remnants left of the Royal Cave Temple, including the remains of a few monastic structures. The main feature is the reclining Buddha statue, sheltered by a protruding rock. It’s half reconstructed in brick, though much of the original statue is still there. Pass other this giant reclining Buddha statue, the hike gets a little bit tricky. While there isn’t too much more hiking to go, there are massive boulders blocking the way up the path. The “path” essentially continues beyond the boulders and up to the top of Pidurangala Rock. It’s best to climb these with a buddy. You can help each other up and around the rocks. Arrival at the top, take the time to see some of the most astonishing 360 degrees sceneries Sri Lanka offer. After our descent, we will depart for our next destination
