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:

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.

    Mukul's 6 days trip to Sri Lanka

    The trip was good. But it was unfortunate, to have two holidays of Udani travels, in my 6 day tour. One on Sunday and other was full moon holiday. They see, but don’t reply whattsapp, nor take calls on holidays, on all 3 given numbers. Requested TT to get the reply. Thank you Sanad. Else hotels, driver everything was satisfactory. TT, see you again on next vacation.

    Great. Only taking us to specific tourists place and limiting local experience was annoying.

    Rajeevalochana Ramakrishnaiah Tyamagundlu

    Bangalore

    Rajeevalochana's 7 days trip to Sri Lanka

    Had a great experience at the trip.We had no lapses in the pick up timings or any other logistic issues.The Driver cum Guide (Rakitha Vijay) was very friendly with us and very accomodative. There was a also a surprise Anniversary party which was arranged by the driver/travel agent for us which was very nice of them. Also Kemila did an excellent job in giving us the best travel Quotation and everything was arranged as per what he had promised.We definitely had an amazing experience in Sri Lanka and would go back again to explore the places we have missed. The hotel (The Habitat) could have been better in Bentota as this resort did not have a beach which was playable in the water and it was not of 5 star quality.Initially Cinnamon Bey was mentioned in the quotation and this was added in the last moment because Cinnamon Bey was sold out which is of much better quality. However rest of everything was precise as per what was promised.I will definitely recommend Tropical Ceylon and particularly Kemila and Rakitha for being very friendly and hospitable.

    Ahmedabad

    Anis's 6 days trip to Sri Lanka

    Udani gave us a very pleasant and comfortable tour experience. Right from pick up to the drop at the airport it was great. Sameera the Driver made our trip more enjoyable with his puntuality and friendly behaviour. All Hotels and their rooms were good to relax , enjoy and explore SriLanka.

    Pravin's 7 days trip to Sri Lanka

    Our holiday to Sri Lanka was very planned by I A M Travel, special care was taken by Noohaa to make our trip comfortable and enjoyable. During the trip our guide Mr Sam and the Bus driver Mr Atul were of great assistance. The holiday could not have been a memorable one without Sam.

    Rajat Gupta

    Bengaluru

    Rajat's 3 days trip to Sri Lanka

    The planning could have been better from agent, we could not see the temple and many other places due to poor timings and they don’t know what time it get closes. Little England in Nuwera Eliya, Sita Devi Temple

    Sharad Karkera

    Mumbai

    Sharad's 6 days trip to Sri Lanka

    I had a good time and found the people very nice, polite & welcoming. I am foodie and was sad to not get an authentic taste of Lankan food. The driver was good, helpful but had his own limitations. It would have been nice if the driver carries that extra ability for customer delight.

    Vinay Khemka

    Kolkata

    Vinay's 7 days trip to Sri Lanka

    It was a very memorable experience for us. All our stay in different properties and the bus journey. We can't do it without mentioning Sam, our guide and our solution for our all the problems. He was fabulous without him our trip wouldn't have been this memorable. High points of our trip were : 1. Stay at Heritance Tea Factory Nuwara eliya 2. Visit to Moons plains. 3. Train journey from Nanu Oya to Ella....those 10minutes of reaching to the clouds. 4. Visit to Turtle Hatchery Farm.
