Mr Kumara arranged a fantastic trip for us.He was there every step of the way,we were able to adjust the itinerary as we wanted and Mr Kumara happily accommodated this.I would highly recommend tours for Sri Lanka.
We were greeted at the airport by Mr Kumara.My friend and I left the airport very late as we had some issues with baggage,however Mr Kumara communicated via what’s app and waited for us patiently.
We checked in to our hotel in Negombo (Amagi Aria Resort 4 star),although we didn’t get a chance to explore the hotel we definitely got a good rest.
The next day we were ready for our adventure to Sigiriya and stopped on the way to see the Pinnawala elephant Orphanage..personally the place is overpriced for foreign visitors,nevertheless it was a joy to see them.
Second night we stayed at (cinnamon Lodge Hotel 5 star)the room was spacious and plenty of options available on the breakfast buffet.We then make our way to Sigiriya Rock Fortress.This was the highlight of my trip.We had to climb 1102 Steps to get to the top and see the views.it was worth it!!We had a tour guide explaining the significance of each point of the fortress.
Third day En route to kandy we stopped at Dambulla Cave Temple.This was an interesting place where you can see the cave has the largest collection of Buddha Statues in one place.We then stopped at spice Garden and made some purchases of spice and herbal products at a very good price.
Next we went to the Temple of Tooth and then went to see a Sri Lankan culture show.This displayed the beautiful outfits,music,dance and culture that makes the country proud of it’s heritage.Overnight stay (Mahaweli Reach 5 star Hotel).Excellent service and food options available.
Fourth day we headed to Nuwara Eliya…this has to be my most favourite place to visit in Sri Lanka…it is full of greenery,beautiful scenery,breathtaking views and waterfalls.This is a place of tranquility and away from city.There are a lot of bedding roads and driving is not easy.However Mr Kumars drove us safely and is definitely an experienced driver.We visited the tea plantation factory and stop to take some pictures at Gregory Lake.Overnight stay at ( Araliya Red Hotel 4 star)the hotel is surrounded by some of the best views and breakfast is on the 7th floor to appreciate the nature whilst having breakfast.
Fifth day we headed to the capital Colombo.En route we visited St.Clair and Devon waterfalls.We wanted to go shopping and Mr Kumara arranged that for us.
