With being only 500 from Sigiriya Rock, it is in prime real estate location. No construction is permitted within a certain radius of the Rock in order to protect the environment. So being close to the rock and the restaurants, yet down a road off the main road, it is in an excellent location.
Pathum homestay only has one bedroom for rent. It is a triple bedroom, comprising of one double bed and one single bed. There is no AC, only a stand up fan to help you keep the room cool. There are mosquito nets too.
The private attached bathroom contains a toilet, douche, wash basin and shower. There is no hot water, but the water is likely to come out warm given the surrounding heat.
The house itself is set in jungle surroundings, and you need to keep your eyes and ears alert for the monkeys. They use snatch and grab tactics so beware. This is a tranquil place apart from the sounds of the jungle. It is suitable for those seeking a jungle experience.
Your host is the delightful Anu with her husband and daughter. They look forward to hosting you.
Breakfast is included in the price.
Sigiriya is in the cultural triangle of Dambulla (19 kms) and Polonnaruwa (54 kms), and as such is an ideal stay over point. The Sigiriya Rock itself (known literally as Lion's Rock) can be seen on all sides and with its 180 m height, this rock fortress is impressive. It will take you approx. 1 hour to ascend the rock, and 30 minutes to descend the 1,200 steps. The frescoes are world famous, and the intricate palace is a place of wonder. It became a World Heritage site recognised by UNESCO in 1982.
Finally, tourist activities include elephant riding, buffalo cart riding and the purchase of wooden artifacts and motifs.
