Overview
In this day excursion to Sigiriya you will be able to climb the UNESCO World Heritage Site "Giant Sigiriya Rock Fortress" and then catch glimpses of bright plumage amongst the greenery and try to identify them. Also get a chance to see some of the other wildlife. The Sigiriya forest is ancient and has high biodiversity despite nearby human populations. Water tanks created by King Kasyappa for his kingdom have assisted in keeping the ecosystem balanced, with lush greenery and good watering holes for the wildlife. Much of the wildlife in the sanctuary are birds, both endemic and migratory, but it's also possible to spot elephants, reptiles, and other creatures.
What to Expect
Our driver will pick you up from your hotel in Negombo and transfer you directly to Sigiriya. You will first hike the Sigiriya rock fortress. Once you descend you will be having lunch and then heading towards the Sigiriya Sanctuary. Surrounding of Sigiriya Rock Fortress is a designated forest reserve and is a very good birding destination. Sigiriya sanctuary is a well protected area as it is a UNECO World Heritage Site, waterways and thick canopied forests make it a heaven for birds. Make the 45 minute journey to the historically significant Sigiriya sanctuary and lake to do Bird watching during your stay in Sigiriya and greet the diverse avian life present in the area as you explore in search of rare birds. The area is widely considered to be a hotspot for bird watching in Sri Lanka as sightings of around 120 bird species have occurred during birdwatching in Sigiriya. Prominent sightings include the viewing of the Sri Lankan Grey Hornbill, Sri Lankan Green Pigeon, Coppersmith Barbet, Red Vented Bulbul, Indian Cormorant, Little Cormorant, Oriental Darter, Spotted Dove, White Bellied Sea Eagle, Comon Iora, Pheasant Tailed Jacana, Brahminy Kite, Small Minivet, Black Hooded Oriole, Grey Breasted Prinia, Crested Tree Swift and many more. Once you finish sightseeing the birds in the sanctuary we will drop you in Sigiriya where the tour ends.
