SEE LANKA - Stop 2.
Good day to hike upto the Lion Rock in central Sri Lanka. Built in the 5th century BC it was home to the Lankan royalty for a mere 18 years. Sprawling gardens, swimming pools, multiple caves and a summer and winter palace make up this beautiful camous. The caves were then inhabited by Buddhist monks.
A not so strenuous hike and the panoramic views from the top make it one of the islands most visited attractions!
