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. Sigiriya is in the cultural triangle of Dambulla (19 kms) and Polonnaruwa (54 kms), and as such is an ideal stay over point.
Tourist activities include buffalo cart riding and the purchase of wooden artifacts and motifs.
The Sigiri Lion Lodge is in a jungle settle and therefore elephants, wild fowl and monkeys may come into the Lodge grounds. If you don't see the monkeys, you will certainly hear them.
The Sigiri Lion Lodge is clearly sign posted from the road and when you enter the premises. The reception is on the left hand side in a pink building.
