SRI LANKA WHALE WATCHING TOUR (4 days / 3 nights)
Day 1 : Depending on your arrival time, you will proceed either directly to Sigiriya or visit en route the Elephant Orphanage at Pinnawala and the Dambulla cave temple: Like Sigiriya, Dambulla is a vast isolated rock mass, which houses a rock temple (formerly caves). Some of its frescoes are over 2,000 years old – and there is a colossal figure of the recumbent Buddha caved out of the rock, some 14 meters long.
Overnight at the Wewa Addara Hotel in Sigiriya.
Day 2 : After breakfast visit Sigiriya: This rock fortress was a royal citadel for more than 18 years. In a sheltered pocket, approached by a spiral stairway, are the famous frescoes. The summit of the rock, with an area of nearly one hectare, was the site of the old palace – the outer wall of which was built on the very brink of the precipice. The UNESCO-sponsored Central Cultural Fund has restored Sigiriya’s 5th century Water Gardens to be former glory.
After checking in to your hotel in Trincomalee, you will visit the Trincomalee Dutch Colonial Fort and the harbour, which has been described as the "finest harbour in the world" and by the British. Followed by the Koneswaram Temple Site - a 17th century stone inscription in the Hindu temple states that the temple began its history in 1580 BC. Though this is unconfirmed, the truth remains that the ancient cave shrine that lies beneath the pinnacle of the mountain points towards a history well predating the Sangam Period. It is also a confirmed fact that Koneswaram was a well established and popular temple during the arrival of the exiled Indian prince Vijayan during the 6th century BC.
Overnight at the Palm Resort in Trincomalee.
Day 3 : A day dedicated to beach, snorkelling and of course, whale & dolphin watching. You also can go on a snorkel tour to the Pigeon Island Marine National Park. In the area of Pigeon Island, 1 km off the Nilaveli Beach, you'll see corals, eels, small groups of different fish or colourful drawn boxfish. Let yourself drift while iridescent parrotfish and damselfish pass slowly. Filigree Lined sweetlips fish standing elegantly in the flow , butterfly fish and banner fish dancing before the dark blue curtain of the sea. With some luck you have encounters with turtles, various species of ray or even blacktip reef sharks there.
Overnight at the Palm Resort in Trincomalee.
