How to Reach Sri Lanka

Read about the best & quickest routes to save time & money, as suggested by our travelers

By Air

Colombo International Airport (CMB) is the main point of entry for international travelers in Sri Lanka. The availability of domestic flights in Sri Lanka is limited as most of the cities are quite near to each other. Direct flights from Indian cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, and Chennai are available by Air India, Jet Airways, and SriLankan Airlines. India to Sri Lanka flight duration may vary from 90 minutes to 3 hours 30 minutes depending on the airport.

However, some of the prime flight zones are from Ampara, Bentota river, Colombo, Hatton, Jaffna, Kandy, Anuradhapura, Katugastota, Kelaniya, Koggala, Mahaweli, Weerala, Sigiriya, Trincomalee etc. The airlines that religiously serve Sri Lanka are like Jet Airways, Singapore airlines, Turkish Airlines, Spice jet airlines etc.

By Train

Once you scout you will get the detail travel time of the buses that majorly includes routes like Negombo, Galle, while there is a direct bus route from the Colombo to Kandy. For every hour the buses travel for forty to fifty kilometers. However, the speed lifts up as the drivers are set to wheel on the plane lands to 60 to 70 kilometers. But again the speed slows down to 20 km in the hilly areas.

By Road

In Sri Lanka, Sri Lanka Railways runs throughout the island. A train ride is more relaxing as compared to other rides. In fact, the first class train ticket in Sri Lanka does not go beyond $15.35. In Sri Lanka, there are three rail lines, including South from Colombo, East from Colombo, and North from Colombo. One can book regular class or an AC class depending upon the distance of your location and hours of travel.

    • Trip to Sri Lanka

      Hello we have visited Srilanka as on 6 th June 17, 2019 would like to mention that Narang (Travel Triangle Holiday Expert) was extremely helpful. We were five couple to visit Sri Lanka . Secondly, Madhusudan(Tropical Ceylon Experts) who was working with Tropical Ceylon was left job .when we reach at Colombo Air port owner Mr. Sujeet was to receive us, made sure our requirements are met. Thirdly, our chauffeur guide Mr.Dilip was not knowing Hindi, so we have faced lot of problem of under sting language, he was cooperative but left us on 4th day and back to his home, Tempo Driver does not know English so last 2 days was not received any information of sight sneering that day there was need of Mr. Narang but he was also not available. Any how we have enjoyed Trip. As per our quotation Tropical Ceylon has to give us Hindi specking Guide, but given English specking Guide, most of our friend doesn’t understand English, this was main problems. Food and hotels was very good

      I would like to thank Ranuka from Amara lanka for his support during our trip to srilanka , there is an advice to them to provide the right guide or cab driver to take us to the right hotel as we had wasted most of our time in going to the wrong place then followed up with the booking agent & ended up in the middle of the night . As i said ranuka was helpful but am not sure whose fault it was when it came to cordination part.
