I finally figured out how to post a question in a forum. Yay!!!
My family and I (5) are in Sri Lanka between Dec 14 and Dec 29. I had everything planned until I ran into a fellow who told me about Ella. Now I'm intrigued to say the least...
We were transferring to Ahangama (staying at Garton's Cape) from Dambulla on Dec 21. Now I'm thinking that I should take a road trip through Kandy-Ella, stay overnight in Ella, and head out to Ahangama on the 22nd. My itinerary is pretty tight. I was hoping to do a Safari (Udawalawa or Yala) when in the south coast. Now I may have to sacrifice that for Ella.
Which should i choose? I realize they are completely different experiences. I'm torn... hope the experts steer me in the right direction.
Dec 14 - arrival and transfer to Alankudah (Kalpitiya) and stay 2 nights
Dec 16 - transfer to Jaffna; stay 3 nights
Dec 19 - Transfer to Dambulla; stay 2 nights
Dec 21- Transfer to Ahangama; stay 3 nights
Dec 24 - Transfer to Colombo; stay 5 nights
