One day Tour Kandy Nuwara Eliya

Hi,

On 06-Jun-13 i have plan for a day trip from Kandy to Nuwara Eliya, please advice

1. what would be the fair price for 1 day Taxi from Kandy to Nuwara Eliya (inclusive tea plantation visit & stops at water fall)

2.is this possible in a day to have this same day trip by train & then have a taxi in Nuwara Eliya for tea plantation & water fall visits.

3.what would be the cost if i reach Nuwara Eliya by train & then have a taxi in Nuwara Eliya for tea plantation & water fall visits & then returning to Kandy

Thanks all for your interest

Hi there,

Not that difficult, about 90 km one way but of course quite an altitude difference.

1] Two ways about Rs 9,000.

2] Well yes but it's better to pre-arrange then, not just try to bargain a taxi once you arrive in Nanu Oya. Train duration Kandy-Peradeniya to there is 5 hours instead of the 2.5-3 hours by car; caused by the long detour (through Hatton) and the slower speed while climbing.

3] Now you pay the one-way price as the car needs to assume an empty return, and that would be around Rs 8,000 - including the ride Nanu Oya to Eliya.

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]
