Considering the importance of having a sustainable tourism plan for Sigiriya, the Sub-Committee on Sustainable Tourism has produced the ‘Proposal for Mitigating over Crowding at the World Heritage Site of Sigiriya’. 

The report includes proposals to renovate the land extent to the east prior to the entry into the Water Garden Precinct, an implementation of a crowd management policy, and better hotel accommodation within designated tourist zones which do not hinder the Sigiriya landscape. 

The full report is available on the Policy Development Office official Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/policydevelopmentoffice.
