Travel times between places.


I will be based in Kalutara, but am planning several days travelling around parts of the country in a mini-bus, and would like to know:

1) Travel time between Pinnawala and Sigiriya.

2) Travel time between Sigiriya and Polonnaruwa.

With thanks...

1. Re: Travel times between places.

Hi there,

General rule of thumb is: use a distance finder and then 30-40 km/h long distance, except the two Expressways and a few quiet roads near the east coast. For these two:

1) Between 2:30 and 3 hours

2} Using the normal road (through Habarana) about 1 hour. There is a shortcut but it tends to be too potholed for tourist-quality vehicles.

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]
