Trip Overview

Cycle and explore the ancient kingdom of Polonnaruwa  - The well-preserved 12th century ruins & impressive stone culture recalls an inspired past. Although nearly 1000 years old, it is much younger than Anuradhapura and generally in better repair. The monuments are arranged in a reasonably compact garden setting and their development is easier to follow. Enjoy a three hour private jeep safari and witness the elephant gathering in Minneriya National Park. Watch as these huge animals drink, play and snack on the green, lush grasses that have been exposed by the receding water.


  • Explore UNESCO-listed Polonnaruwa with ease on a private bike tour
