How to Reach Attidiya Bird Sanctuary

How to reach Attidiya Bird Sanctuary is a big question for all wildlife enthusiasts around the world. From Colombo, Attidiya Bird Sanctuary is a simple thirty minute drive away. The route is very frequently travelled. The closest bus stop to Attidiya Bird Sanctuary are Attidiya Junction bus stop and Pansala Handiya bus stop.

Buses are the cheapest and easiest mode of transport from Colombo city to Attidiya Bird Sanctuary. The only other valid options for transport are cabs and Tuk-Tuks. The closest airport to Attidiya Bird Sanctuary is Bandaranaike International Airport in Colombo. So, this is the best answer to how to reach Attidiya Bird Sanctuary from Colombo.

The closest railway station is in Mount Lavinia, which is a thirteen kilometer drive from Colombo. The nearest port is Colombo Harbor for tourists arriving by sea. There is a similar scenario with the distance from Colombo Port to the bird sanctuary. A slightly unconventional way to go is the local specialty – Tuk-Tuk rides. There is no better way to travel than in luxury and customizability. Tuk-Tuk rides offer exactly that at very flexible price ranges. This is best for tours of the entire city of Colombo and not just one location at a time. But for the best experience, an entire day just for the sanctuary is wise. In that case, it is best to take a bus from Colombo.
