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 LankaGood Trip planned with Overa tours (via travel triangle) . All the Hotels are good except Araliya Green Hills – NuwaraEliya due to hotel staff behavior and room comfort. Our vehicle was excellent but Driver is not very polite with kids. He needs to be little patient with kids. Driver does not have much idea about the Sightseeing places to visit in Colombo.
Trip to Sri LankaTT’s whole team is awesome. It was a great experience and probably the smoothest holiday we ever had.
Trip to Sri LankaSri Lanka is a a very serene, clean and a beautiful country. My entire family had a wonderful and a memorable stay. The hotels booked were good and comfortable.We had no problem during the entire trip.Our cab driver was an extremely courteous man with a smile always on his face.My dad has muscular problem in his legs, the driver was very helpful , helping him in and out of the car and took good care of him when my father was unable to accompany us at some of the places.It was under his pursuance that we got a chance for river rafting though it was not in our itinerary but on our way to next spot.River rafting indeed became one of the most amazing experiences of the entire trip.The trip was very well organized.Since we were vegetarian we had little problem for food for lunch but the cab driver made sure we had our lunch at good places and will look around for restaurants for it and show us the menu.

Trip to Sri Lanka3 hotels were 2 star. With no staff to attend us early morning for tea or coffee. WiFi was big trouble too at such hotels. May rating us 2.5 for this. Nuwara Eliya and Sigiriya was worth our visit. Mirissa hotel was a toss up but we liked the place.

Trip to Sri LankaOur trip to SriLanka was our first overseas trip as a family, and it was made magical thanks to the Boom Lanka team. Right from the process of inquiry, where Ms. Nethmi patiently explained everything to us, and changed the itinerary as per our requirement, to the wonderful Mr. Dankan Aiya, our tour guide, who was this ever smiling, patient paragon, the Boom Lanka team was thoroughly friendly and professional. All the hotels arranged were very good, and we have no qualms with any of the rooms. Extra expenses that might be incurred were explained to us beforehand, and we had ample time to arrange currency for travel. The hospitality of the Sri Lankan people blew us away. We owe this experience to Mr. Dankan Aiya, our guide and chauffeur, for his super friendly touch throughout the trip.

Trip to Sri LankaIt was a great experience and hospitality provided by red global ifaz and driver manoj. Unluckyly it was a govt holiday and a festival day tat most of the shops were shut.

Everything was good from the time receiving till the time dropping us back. Loved the one day trip in srilanka.
Trip to Sri LankaWell organized. Cotyledon Tour business development manager was excellent and extremely helpful. The driver cum guide was also too good. Only change in hotel should be discussed and approval taken before affecting any changes in the originally agreed list. Whole tour full of snippets of good memory.
