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.

    • Trip to Sri Lanka

      My experience with travel triangle was mixed. The website and the link to agents is fantastic so I am likely to use it again. However, the trip missed the idea of what my girlfriend and I wanted from the trip. We are both outdoor enthusiasts, travel for work and had a short period of time in Sri Lanka. We wanted a very outdoor themed tour; treks, nature and waterfalls. The guide pushed city tours, tourist traps (gem factories, spice gardens ... worst part of the trip) and although he eventually removed them from the itinerary, the driver was still expecting to bring us there as the tours are quite set. We explained to our driver and he did his best to alter the plans and find good tours but the original plan restricted him due to hotels and travel times. Our original request was missed entirely by the booking agents. For those booking (myself included) in the future, the request needs to be very specific and do not allow a vague itinerary as I had. The hotels were excellent but served ‘tourist food’ whilst we wanted the local experience. I do suggest you check online reviews of hotels before accepting as we had to change twice from suggested hotels that had extremely bad online reviews. Overall, we had a good trip but thanks to our driver rather than the original booking agent. I would find it difficult to recommend Ntours again but the idea of travel triangle is excellent and will be used again.

      In general, the trip was very good with the exception of the last 2 stops. In Bentota, the weather was not good to do sea sports and the sea was not swimmable, which led us to do other unplanned activities. I know that the weather factor is not within your capacity to control; however, I remember that I made my concern very clear to the travel agent through our whatsApp chats that the weather might not be good and if it would be better to reroute. It is worth noting that the whole area did not have much tourists and the hotels were almost deserted, which is an indicator that it was not the proper season to visit the Sri Lankan western coast. In the last stop, although the plan was to visit Negombo, we were accommodated in a village that is 30-min away from the city center, which was not convenient to visit the city properly.

    • Trip to Sri Lanka

      It was as very good trip. Services of Tropical ceylon were very good. All services provided as per promise. Only problem was the communication with driver. The driver didn't know the english very well so it became very difficult to converse with him. Please make sure when you travel confirm the availability good english speaking driver.

      Our recent family trip to Sri Lanka was very well-organized and efficiently executed. The locations of hotels was great and the service was good too. Our tour guide, Rilwan, was very friendly and knowledgeable. His patience and efficiency made the entire experience even better. It's a beautiful country with many scenic spots and lovely people. It was a memorable trip! Thank you to leisure tours and travel triangle! There were many beautiful memories but one of the best was the hike to Little Adam's Peak and the view from there was just mesmerizing.

    • Trip to Sri Lanka

      Overall Trip was great. But then the Itinerary given and actual were way different. Missed on few prime locations as the the place were way too far and not on the way. One of the hotel was extremely bad. Hotel Mount Heaven. The Hotel locations were also not in prime location.The agent was not at all helpful during the trip. I had done a trip earlier with Travel Triangle which was way better. I am disappointed this time!

      I loved the whole service specially the support offered kemila ( the agent of tropical Ceylon). I was very worried about the accommodation but he assured and delivered as promised. I thank him to make this trip unforgettable and memorable. Although the driver was not good guide he was ok ok but still I loved the overall journey. Kemila you will be my all time favorite. Thanks to TT for giving a good platform where we could better understand the country we are visiting. Hotel was good, Cab was clean and Good, places we visited awesome, local hotel staffs and peoples were good. Everything was good. Driver as a guide was not good he was not that much interested in guiding and telling about the places , he was unaware about many things. But overall things were great.
