hatton to hikkaduwa - best route by bus


We are doing the Adams Peak today night/tomorrow morning. We need to get to Hikkaduwa after the descend. We will hopefully reach Dalhousie by noon and then take a bus to Hatton.

Which is the best (fastest) way to get to Hikkaduwa by tomorrow night, by bus?? Please let me know how long will it take for each stop over. All help is much appreciated

Hi there,

a] Hatton-Colombo, around 4-5 hours

b] Colombo-Hikka, by bus or train around 2:30 hours

Hence it's going to be tight as after 6 PM the public transport schedules in Lanka get very, very limited - but if you're in Colombo before 8 PM for sure you'd be able to catch a bus to Hikka within an hour.

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]

Thanks a ton Erik & Sandhya!

We are already on the way to Hatton and should reach there by 12.30, and hopefully reach Colombo by 6.

Thanks again for all the help.
