Sigiriya – a secret treasure, words and the possibility of crocodiles

By Emma. Pour l’article de Damien, cliquez ici. Click here for photos of there.

Sigiriya holds a kingdom in minature and ancient frescos of beautiful women. Its allure is immediate, the stream of tourists and the inflated entry fee far less so. We had heard whispers of another place. Pidurangala. So we gambled …

Past the place where crocodiles go about, we abandoned our “My Girl” bikes by the yellow, dust road and began our climb. Past the riot of monkeys, the cave temple and the enormous resting Buddha, we climbed. We clambered.

We crabed over the boulders and wiggled through gaps and found the most amazing view that I’ve ever feasted on!
