Wish to explore Kandy and then take the train to Haputale to go through Pattipola Station (the highest station in the world with the broad gauge track), through Horton Plains and Great Western.
When returning to Colombo from Haputale, what is the best route? From what I gather, it seems like I would have to go back to Kandy to get to Col? Leave Haputale at 07:45am and arrive in Col at 15:27pm (8 hours). Its a long ride, and would appreciate an alternate route (if any), via rail. Or should I forget the train back and take a bus (maybe take 4 hours)?
