Hi there,

Yes 2 days is essential for this. Count on Rs 10,000 for transport, then maybe Rs 4000 for lodging halfboard in guesthouse (2 persons) plus entrance fees as mentioned in top question on fees.

All the best,

Oops correction, mixed up distances from Bentota and airport. Should be around 16,000-17,000 for transport (2 days out and return), plus a little toll Bentota (Welipenna exit) to Kadawatha.

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]
