Although the trip officially begins from Colombo, the real wonder starts from Pinnewela. We will drive to Pinnewela where we can see the Elephant orphanage. There are a large number of domesticated elephants and all of them are taken good care of at this orphanage. Our next visit is Polonnaruwa which is a beautiful plain land filled with dense forests, lakes and with a wonderful array of wildflowers and herbs. We will then visit the Kaudulla and Minneriya National parks where we hope to get a glimpse of the majestic Asian Elephants. Next we will drive to Sigriya which is a fortress situated atop a hill. It has also been referred to as the "sky fortress" and stands on a 200 meter high hill. In the morning we will also visit the beautiful caves at Dambulla. The caves have Buddhist inscriptions and are completely breathtaking. There are beautiful sculptures carved out of rocks and the floors and the ceiling have all been decorated. The whole cave is about 50 meters long and has been a place of devotion for over 2000 years.
