Sleeping at the foot of the Sigiriya rock (â€˜Lion rockâ€™) since two nights already (marvellous view from the hotel towards the rock), finally got to visit it!
The rock is towering
Continuing climbing steeply up the rock youâ€™ll reach the Lion Platform, where you find the remains of a gigantic lion statue. Then the final ascent to the summit, a narrow iron staircase!
Once at the top youâ€™ll find the remains of The Royal Palace and a large tank. And a marvellous (although somewhat hazy) view!!!
In the afternoon we visited a local family, a mother with here daughters demonstrating some typical house hold chores such as cooking methods, husking coconut, making rotiâ€¦.. a touristic thing, but interesting (for sure due to the very friendly, charming ladies J).
