Entrance Walkway, Sigiriya, Sri Lanka
It was an ordeal to climb the 1200 steps in the scorching heat (up and down) but it was definitely worth the pain :), We hired a guide who charged us Rs 2500 (Srilankan rupees), we thought it was expensive but then we really didnt have a choice. There is no point in climbing all the way to the top without understanding the significance of every part of the fortress

About Sigiriya

We were flying from Oman. Our flight was via Dubai to Sri Lanka. We reached SL airport on 22-May-2017, 8 am. As we already had the ETA, immigration process was quite simple and fast. Took a local sim which costed me 9 $. Outside of Airport Sampath was waiting for us with a placard. Sampath had been assigned as our tour guide from tourist agent we opted for. He could speak manageable English which we were quite fine with it. We started our journey towards Sigiriya which was almost 180 Km away from Airport. We were enjoying the beauty of SL, it was raining that day. Sigiriya is Historical place and famous for wild Safari life as well. We tried some cuisine in lunch. After reaching there, first place we went to "Minneriya National Park" for Jangal Safari (Wild Life Safari). Hired a Jeep for 2 hrs for 90$, which initially they asked 100 $. It was a adventurous experiences all together for us.
