Hi there,

Fastest is cab, around 5 hour. About as beautiful as the train which follows a different route; longer, esp. from Negombo as you need to transfer in Colombo. Safetywise no difference really as long as it's daytime.

All the best,

I traveled to Nuwara Eliya by train from Kandy, not Colombo. Im female and went there alone. you will be safe, but it takes long time to get to there. If from Kandy, the most beautiful view is the right side

Thanks!

One question though.

I have tried to book a train from Colombo to Nuwara Eliya(getting off at Nanu oya) through this link https:/…main.jsp

1.Is this the right train I should take?

2.Is there a reason they are not showing dates after friday 23rd?

3.There is no markup for female seats,can I just book different one?

Thanks again!!

Hi again,

See

tripadvisor.com/Travel-g293961-c195051/Sri-L…

for much train info. Yes Rajadhani and Exporail are the Internet bookable ones; both have theirn quirks e.g. indeed RE opening solely 14 days before date, weird! And none has female-only seats as they're always only one coach...

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya
