After breakfast we will pick you up from your hotel and will drive you to the starting point of this beautiful ride to the magnificent Sigiriya Rock Fortress. Following an irrigational canal, we ride passing agricultural lands of sweet potato, beans, finger millets, and rice paddies. Along the canal, more lush and green nature makes it paradise for bird lovers. While contemplating the natural rhythm of local life, we will stop by a small lake for a short break and enjoy some local snacks and beverages.
Your guide will talk about the local culture and atmosphere throughout the ride. Pedaling past the Pidurangala Rock we reach the 5th century Sigiriya moats. Riding around the moats of lion rock on the shady gravel path is a peaceful experience. As we move along further we can get a hint of the flavor of the unspoiled authentic rural life by stopping at a local house to learn and try how to make a local sweet call “Kokkis”. Having a break at the stunning “Talkote” Lake Bund for a picture, continue the ride to Digampathana where the ride ends.
