Sigiriya refuses to reveal its secrets easily, and you'll have to climb a series of vertiginous staircases attached to sheer walls to reach the top. On the way, you 'll pass a series of quite remarkable frescoes and a pair of colossal lions paws carved into the bedrock. The surrounding landscape – lily-pad-covered moats, water gardens, and quiet shrines – and the excellent site museum, only add to Sigiriya's rock-star appeal.
