Pidurangala Rock, Sigiriya Reviews

  • A walk along a forest trail to an isolated rock with panoramic views. Great view of Lion's rock with .01% of the tourist traffic. Climb if you are young or fit or not so fit but have determination. Trail is marked with painted arrows along the upper section over the rocks.

  • The climb was quite adrenalineful, especially the last highest part but otherwise I really enjoyed it. I recommend wearing sturdy shoes, even though some individuals wore flip flops or were even barefoot. What seems like a great idea is seeing the sunset up there which is beautiful, but don't forget you have to go back and it's not the easiest task in dark.

  • Take a water bottle with you and please don't litter the area by putting them here and there. More you climb it harder your journey gets 😂 but after reaching the top of the rock you will get a glamorous view of the whole area..

  • Climb here early in the morning to see the sunrise and the Sigiriya rock at dawn. It's quite an easy hike, mainly steps. It gets a bit rough at the end where you have to climb few big stones but nothing an averagely fit person wouldn't be able to do. It took us about 20-25 minutes to get on top. You don't really need a guide but you might get confused at the end in the dark so if you're alone just tag along a group with the guide, there's always someone early in the morning. The entrance is 500 Rupees.

  • One of finest hiking and rock climbing, and best view of the Sigiriya is recommended. Wonderful nature with cool wind i had 2 hours of sleep on top of the Pidurangala rock and enjoyed the Sun set.
