Trip Overview

Visit some of the top destinations of Sri Lanka on this 2 Day trip from Colombo which is a perfect mix of adventure, culture and history.

A 15m long sculpture of Buddha is the highlight of this place. The frescos on the walls and ceilings are from the 15th century and they depict scenes from the life of Buddha.

Had a fantastic trip with Trodly. Booking it was super easy and got trip updates on time. Could not climb Sigiriya as I was tired but best part was Minneriya morning safari. Saw plenty of elephants and buffaloes.
