DAY 02,After breakfast transfer to Habarana

After breakfast transfer to Habarana Habarana, located in the north central part of the island, Habarana is a part of Sri Lanka’s dry zone. Thanks to the genius of our ancient kings dating as far as the 05th Century AD, the Sri Lankan Dry Zone is anything but dry, with hundreds of lakes and reservoirs which are connected by an elaborate network of canals making up an old but great irrigation system. Aside from the benefit for agriculture and industry, the waterworks of the dry zone provide some of the most breathtakingly beautiful scenery and fertile habitat for the islands incredible bio-diversity. There after ascend the rock fortress Sigiriya in the afternoon. Sigiriya – this UNESCO World Heritage Site, a spectacular Rock Fortress, is one of Sri Lanka’s major attractions. The most impressive facets of the unique complex are the Water Gardens, the Frescoes of beautiful maidens, the Mirror Wall with ancient graffiti, the Lion platform and the Summit of 1.6 hectares, which was completely covered by buildings during the period of Sigiriya’s glory. Built by King Kashyapa (477-495 A.D), the “Lion Rock” is a citadel of unusual beauty rising 200m from the scrub jungle. The rock was the innermost stronghold of the 70 hectare fortified town and the base is ringed by a moat, rampart, and extensive gardens. The world-renowned frescoes (originally 500, of which only 19 remain today) which are in a sheltered pocket of the rock approached by a spiral stairway are painted in earth pigments on plaster. The old stairway to the top led through the mouth of a crouching lion but today only the huge paws remain giving an indication of the massive proportions of the head. Remains of the handsome royal citadel are on the summit and several caves for meditation, audience platforms and baths complete the unique site. Overnight Chaaya Village, Habarana

DAY 03,Habarana

After an early breakfast drive to a village that lies sprawled around a reservoir located off the main Habarana road. This is a unique jungle and village experience. Depart early from the hotel to a point off the main road where you begin a scintillating walk over village paths, a tank (ancient reservoir) bund and forest. Cross a little jungle rivulet by catamaran to reach a farmers simple "wattle and daub" house. Begin the next phase of your trek, which will lead you through vegetable plots and into a scrub forest, where a waiting bullock cart will transport you through jungle and passed paddy fields. A truly Sri Lankan experience Overnight Chaaya Village, Habarana

DAY 04,Polonnaruwa

Leave early at 0500 am before dawn to Parakrama Lake in Polonnaruwa and enjoy the experience of traveling on a catamaran with a local fisherman while he sets off to the lake for his daily catch. You will be able to witness the sunrise from the center of the lake while engaging with fishing activities. Once returned to shore you will have the opportunity to enjoy a few wonderful Sri Lankan sweetmeats which have been home prepared. Thereafter explore the city by bicycle the easiest way to get around the palaces and temple complex. While the local bikes may be old, they are good enough to get the job done! Thereafter continue to the ride through the village of Polonnaruwa…. Meet local people and learn about their way of life, finally join a family in the preparation of a typical village lunch with many different types of Sri Lankan vegetables and lake fish! Polonnaruwa – this medieval city, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, rose to fame as the capital (10th - 12th century AD) after the decline of Anuradhapura. The entire landscape of the region is punctuated by huge man-made reservoirs, the most famous of which is the Parakrama Samudra or the Sea of Parakrama, larger in size than the Colombo harbour. The monuments are relatively well preserved and give clear evidence of the glory of Sri Lanka's past. Highlights are the Royal Palace complex including the Kings Palace and Audience Hall, the Quadrangle with its concentration of ancient heritage and the spectacular Gal Vihare complex of four massive images of the Buddha, cut from a single slab of granite - a highlight of ancient Sri Lankan rock carving. Some of the best examples of the Hindu influence – the Temples of Shiva, intricate statues of Hindu Gods, fascinating Budhist temples, the Lankatileka and Watadage, the Galpotha, the Lotus bath, the Kiri Vihare Dagoba and the remains of a former Temple of the Tooth are other impressive sights. Take an afternoon safari at one of the National parks in the region. The options are Minneriya National Park Kaudulla National Park. Depending on the season and the sightings of elephants for the day the driver will discuss and make a decision on which park to visit. MInneriya Nstiona Park -Located between Habarana and Polonnaruwa, the 8,890 hectares of Minneriya National Park consists of mixed evergreen forest and scrub areas and is home to favorites such as sambar deer, leopards and elephants. However the central feature of the park is the ancient Minneriya Tank (built in 3 rd century AD by King Mahasena). During the dry season (June to September), this tank is an incredible place to observe the elephants who come to bathe and graze, as well as the huge flocks of birds (cormorants and painted storks to name but a few) that come to fish in the shallow waters. Kaudulla National Park -This 6,656 hectare park, which opened in 2002, is an elephant corridor which offers visitors the opportunity to get within close range of the animals. At Kaudulla, near Habarana in the ancient cities zone, it is possible to hire a catamaran to sail on the tank and look out for the elephants, leopards, fishing cats, sambar deer and the endangered rusty spotted cat. August to December is the best time to go. Overnight Chaaya Village, Habarana
