Day 02

Breakfast at the hotel.

Proceed to Pinnawala.
Visit the Elephant Orphanage at Pinnawala.
The Elephant Orphanage is located on a large coconut plantation adjacent to the Maha Oya River. It was founded in 1975 in order to protect and provide care and sanctuary to the orphaned elephants that were found in the wild. Pinnawala has the largest herd of captive elephants in the world. By the early 2012, there were 78 elephants from 3 generations living in the Orphanage.
The main attraction is the opportunity to observe the bathing elephants at close quarters from the broad river bank as the herd interact socially, playing and bathing. Visitors to the park also can view many different aspects of the care and daily routine of the elephants, such as bottle feeding of baby elephants and feeding of adult elephants. This feeding takes place daily at 9:15 am, 1:15 pm and 5:00 pm. The herd get their twice a day river baths from 10:00 am to 12:00 noon and from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm.

Thereafter, proceed to Sigiriya.
Visit the historical Sigiriya Rock Fortress (A UNESCO World Heritage Site).
Soaring above the surrounding plains to towering heights, the cloud hugging rock of Sigiriya is regarded by many as one of the wonders of the world. This 5th Century rock fortress is one of the Island’s 8 World Heritage Sites and was the innermost stronghold of the 70 hectare fortified town. The two enormous artfully sculpted lion paws are all that remains of the giant recumbent lion to which the rock was transformed into, giving the rock its name. Executed daringly, on a stupendous scale, it prompts one to marvel at the creative vision that was behind this structure. The summit of this rock was the unlikely setting for a courtly paradise of elegant pavilions, amid water gardens and pools, all perched 180 meters (600 ft) above the surrounding jungle.
Painted under an overhanging rock, of the original 500 or so frescoes which vie with those in Ajanta in Western India, only 21 remain. The figures are portraits of ‘Apsaras’ (celestial nymphs) and attendants above clouds – offering flowers, scattering petals or bathing.

Day 03

Breakfast at the hotel.
Visit the historical Dambulla Rock Cave Temple (A UNESCO World Heritage Site), which is also known as the Golden Temple of Dambulla. It is the largest and best preserved cave temple complex in Sri Lanka. This cave complex dates from the 3rd and 2nd centuries BC, when it was already established as one of the largest and most important monasteries. King Valagambahu is traditionally thought to have converted the caves into a temple in the 1st century B.C.
The rock towers 160m over the surrounding plains. Major attractions are spread over 5 caves, which contain statues and paintings which are related to Lord Buddha and his life. There are a total of 153 Buddha statues of which the largest colossal figure of Buddha is carved out of a rock, spanning 14 meters. 3 statues of Sri Lankan kings and 4 other statues of Hindu gods and goddesses are also found. The murals cover an area of 2,100 square meters, which is the largest area of ancient wall paintings found in the world.

Proceed to Kandy en route visiting a spice garden to see different spices for which Sri Lanka is famous for, and how some of these spices are grown and processed and to witness a cookery demonstration.

Check in at the hotel in Kandy (Options for hotel as detailed below)
Do a sightseeing tour of Kandy (A UNESCO World Heritage Site). The Kandyan kingdom, the last bastion of the Sri Lankan political power against the colonial forces, is the home for the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic and the site of one of the world’s most impressive annual festivals – the Esala Perahera. The Temple contains the most sacred relic of the Buddhists today and the most precious of Sinhalese pride. The upper storey houses the sacred relic and a library containing 800 year old palm leaf religious manuscripts. The Pooja (ceremonies of veneration) are held at dawn and dusk daily and these are moments when the Temple comes to life with pilgrims making offerings of flowers amidst clouds of incense and the beating of traditional ritual drums.
The city is visually rich with its narrow streets lined with characterful old buildings. The lake built by the last Sinhala King Sri Wickrama Rajasinghe in 1798 is still a focal attraction. The market has a good display of traditional arts and craft, textiles and gems & jewelry. Visit a gem lapidary to learn the forming of over 40 precious stone varieties that Sri Lanka is home for into desirable decorative items.
In the evening witness a cultural show of traditional Sri Lankan performing arts, featuring a series of ceremonial and ritual dances, and fire walking.

After the Kandyan kingdom fell into the hands of the British, the Botanic Gardens was established in 1821. During the time of the British, the key function of the Gardens was to conduct research into and introduce economic crops such as cinnamon, coffee and rubber. Currently, the Garden’s functions include authenticating and conserving plants, managing and developing the National Herbarium, providing educational opportunities to the public as well as promoting domestic floriculture and horticulture.

私は素敵な旅行のために、もう一度あなたに感謝したいと思います。グループの誰もが両方のスタッフと旅程で、幸せでした。素晴らしい仕事。

Ichirō Tsukada – Akiruno-shi, Tokyo 197-0833 Japan

We have just arrived back in Kyiv after the most incredible holiday in Sri Lanka. It has been a tour of a lifetime arranged by Maldiviana Holidays. The 6 days we spent truly added so much to our experience. Our only sadness is that we were not able to spend more time

Kateryna Berezhnaya – m. Kyiv, 03110 Ukraine

My family have asked me to thank you once again for our wonderful tour of Sri Lanka. You looked after us so nicely & we saw more than we had expected. Historical places were totally magnificent, to finish with that relaxing beach holiday, but so much more besides.

Blažek Ivánek – Praha 4, 14000 Czech Republic

We spent 2 weeks in Sri Lanka & Maldives, in the capable hands of Maldiviana. Everything worked without a hitch. Excellent experience and I can’t say enough about guides. They were knowledgeable, but more importantly, they understood our expectations every time.
