How to Reach Sri Lanka
Taking a direct flight from Delhi or Chennai to Colombo is the best way to travel cover the distance from India and Sri Lanka. The island is completely inaccessible by road and train so India to Sri Lanka by flight is a preferred option for travellers. Those wondering how to go to Sri Lanka from India by ship should know that Mumbai to Colombo cruise takes about 2 days and ferries are available at Rameshwaram. Boarding an India to Sri Lanka cruise is a good alternative to booking a flight. Recently UNESCO added the name of Sri Lankan historical sites to the category of World heritage sites. Certainly, UNESCO’s addition helped attract more tourists and Sri Lanka’s tourism has progressed significantly. Whether it’s the ancient temples or the stone etched carvings in a cave, all minutely portray the legacy of their ancient rulers and civilization. Now, read to get a perfect idea about the diverse routes of Sri Lanka.Below are the different options about how to reach Sri Lanka including distance and flight duration:
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.
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.
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 LankaWe are a family of four and visited Sri Lanka recently on a 6nights trip. We found traveltriangle.com a helpful, user friendly, well-designed traveller's site. Before booking, they gave us 5-6 comparative quotes with itineraries and facilitated dialogue with each of the agencies. They also guided us on the payment process and tips for travelling in Sri Lanka. Only drawback was that multiple people from traveltriangle were contacting us at multiple times. Having a single point of contact with traveltriangle would have been better. We chose LookLanka tours after due consideration of the itinerary and cost. Sihan from LookLanka tours was very helpful , knowledgeable and friendly. He patiently answered and clarified all our concerns. He helped us customize our package and booked good hotels as per our choice. He is a very good ambassador for LookLanka tours. I would recommend LookLanka tours to anyone planning to visit Sri Lanka.

Trip to Sri LankaHotel in BENTOTA was awesome... however, in Colombo it was not upto the mark... Driver was able to help us and guide to visit places... overall a good experience...
Trip to Sri LankaTravel agent (Chamauli) create many problems because they not inform to hotel staff about my package what included in it. and the major problem with the food. After these things we try to talk to travel agent they are not given the proper response to us and hotel staff force to us talk to the travel agent and they are also not supported to us that's why we are facing with many more problems. only because of worst service of tropical Ceylon (Chamauli). Only one thing is good that is driver service (Rizan) he support us every time and tries to solve the problem on his hand.
Trip to Sri LankaApart from Vegeterian food everything was very enjoyable. Also it would have been great if entry rates for attractions would have been included in the package View from hotel room at Nuwara Eliya and Snorkeling
