Elephant rides, Sigiriya Overview

Apart from hiking to the summit of Sigiriya Rock or merely marvelling at this imposing structure from below, an unconventional way to sightsee at Sigiriya is by the elephant rides.

The elephant rides at Sigiriya usually begin at the same site or Habarana, a city located about 20 minutes away from Sigiriya. The rides occur at Sigiriya Wewa, a lake near the rock fortress which was the primary source of water for the kingdom. One can enjoy the scenic surroundings, stunning views of the majestic fort and the opportunity to be up close with these gentle giants.

It is important to note that some of the tour operators organizing these elephant rides may not follow ethical guidelines. Ensure that the tour operator you have chosen has a reputation for following such ethical practices.
