The traffic between Galle & Ella

Hi folks. I'm planning to go to Sri Lanka before Xmas. Do somebody know the transportation from Galle to Ella? What's the time & cost? Thank you at first.

Hi Barbara,

By road it would take around 4-5 hours and cost something like Rs 15,000. Bus (at least one transfer) is slower, 7-8 hours, but lots cheaper.

All the best,

Yes good correction. My ballpark was 200 km but distance finder gives 232 km and it's Rs 70-75/km.

All the best,
