Ella to Matara

Hi, what is the best way to get from Ella to Matara?

My plan was to take a bus from Ella to Wellawaya and then take another bus from Wellawaya to Matara. Does this work? Or is there a better route? Thanks!

Hi there,

There are a few buses per day Bandarawela-Ella-Matara, direct. But if you cannot catch such one indeed what you propose sounds like a plan. From Wellawaya for sure can catch a bus to Hambantota and there another one to Matara, a direct one Wellawaya-Matara will be more rare.

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]
