Hi there,

Around Rs 20,000 including 2 x toll Welipenna - Kadawatha on E01. But it assumes that the accomodation you sorted out in Kandy (? you write 'Bentota'?) has a free drivers quarter, if not pay Rs 2000-2500 extra for a dorm room and food for the driver.

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]

Well but you are responsible for the cost of it. Either find a place with drivers quarter, most of the hotels above 1 star have this and some upmarket guesthouses too; or give him this 2500 extra, for that budget he'll find a room and food himself.

Have fun,
