How do we get to Kithulgala? We would like to visit a friend who is working on the rafts there. never having visited before just trying to sort some options

Can we hire a car easily

We are landing at Colombo but intend staying down south for the majority of our stay, probably Mirissa etc

We have looked at the train to Matara as we like to do it this way, not in the slightest bit interested in drivers(couldn't afford them anyway)

Any info on travel would be welcomed, we have travelled extensively in Asia but first vist to SL

Fredericia, Denmark

Self drive in Sri Lanka is not recommended and hardly cheaper than hiring a driver sue to high insurance premiums.

Public transport:
