Cultural triangle base and scooter

Hi,

We're going to Sri Lanka next month and I was wondering if it's possible to do (part of the) cultural triangle with a motorbike (scooter: under 49cc)as transportation between the sites?

From Habarana (I've read this is a nice central place?) it's about 13km to Sigiriya, 25 km to Dambulla, 45 km to Polonnaruwa, 77km to Anuradhapura. So it seems that it should be possible. However, I have no idea how long this would take and if it's even possible to rent motorbikes and helmets there. And is it legal to ride one with a Dutch license (and international permit)?

Really hope to hear from someone!

Thanks,

Nicky

Hi Nicky,

Yes it's feasible, IF you trust selfdriving in the crazy traffic there. As far as I know for motorbike too first you must endorse your International Driving License at the AA in Colombo, otherwise not valid in Lanka. Dambulla or Habarana are the most central bases, with Dambulla giving more chance of finding bikes to rent.

Groetjes,

<Erik> & [Sandya]
