Hi there,

5 km. Hence totally useless to go by train; tuktuk or bus suffices.

All the best,

Thanks once again. Another question please.

We will be travelling from Nuwara eliya down to Tissa. Having read numerous posts, should we go via Ella and if so what are the options for modes of travel.

Hi there,

Yes that's the shortest route. By car-driver around 5 hours for a cost of about Rs 12,000. Bus if you're as lucky to find the morning direct buses around 7 hours, if you are stuck with a transfer (e.g. Bandarawela and/or Wellawaya) it gets a bit more.

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]
