A visitor to Sri Lanka may have 2 major sunrise experiences in the world. First one is the sunrise of Adam’s Peak and the second one is here at the top of the Pidurangala. You may enjoy the lighting up the valley of Sigiriya with the rise of the sun.

If you wish to watch the top sceneries of the sunrise, you have to reach the top before it happens. We recommend start hiking from the bottom before an hour of the predicted sunrise time of the day.
