Sigiria: Sigiriya (Lions) Rock and Minneriya National Park
Early the next day we hiked up a smaller rock, Pidurangala, through a temple area to view the main rock in Sigiria. This was a much quieter way of seeing the sight, although it involved a lot of climbing up big rocks to make it to the top, it was an adventure!
You could see how busy it was on the other side...and a bit more scary in my opinion!
Minneriya National Park
Not too far away was the National Park known for its elephants!! It was great to be around them in their natural habitat and we witnessed 2 baby elephants playing with one pushing the other into the water. Was so cute!!
