excursions from bentota

I will be staying in bentota for 7 days and I am interested to do some one day excursions from there.

I am interested with beautiful views of country side,tea plantations waterfalls and elephants.

where can we go on a day car trip(routes between 2-3 hours) as we want to comback to bentota in the end of the day??

Hi Sami,

A bit challenging esp. the tea plantations and waterfalls. And even the elephants are 2 x 3.5 hours (30 mins shorter than before the Expressway was open). But have a look at


to see what it feasible.

All the best,

Best option would be to have an overnight stay on your excursion & turn it into a 2 day trip.

Until you actually start travelling in Sri Lanka, its virtually impossible to imagine how long short road trips take.
