I am planning to travel to Srilanka on 04-Jul-2022. Once I land I am planning Colombo - Kandy - Ella. Anyone travelling there at the same time?

This is a very short trip for someone coming from far away such as Europe or N. America.

Probably better to try and find someone you know back home.

Do a search for distances between Kandy, Colombo and Ella.

Good luck anyway.

Dear karazyal,

Thank you for your reply. I will be travelling from Doha, Qatar. I am a solo traveler but it will be nice to have a travel companion who might have similar plans. I posted to see if anyone would be there during that time.

I did check on the distances. I plan to do the whole travel by train. Seems that the time might just well be enough to cover or I can change the plan there to extend or shorten the trip.

Thank you so much for your advice.

Have fun on your trip. Consider adding a few more days to your trip allowing you to relax a little more. The cost of your flight is probably the same for a few more days. Then it is only hotel and eating.

One thing I liked was the Sigiriya Rock Fortress. Nice walk to the top. Good view of the area.

Have a nice trip.
