We had the most amazing time on our Elephant Safari at Udawalawe National Park in Sri Lanka. We had hear that Yala National Park could be quite busy so we opted for a safari at Udawalawe National Park instead and it didn’t disappoint! We saw elephants, deer, water buffalo and heaps of different birds including eagles and huge peacocks. This safari in Sri Lanka was the highlight of our trip and we would go again in a heartbeat.
We struggled hard to figure out how to get from Kandy to Dambulla on an Air-conditioned bus. There was basically nothing useful online and the tourist information offices in Kandy weren’t helpful at all. They preferred to focus on referring us to their own overpriced Taxi services instead (7000 LKR was quoted to us compared to the local buses that go for 70 LKR).
So read on if you want to know how to catch a local non a/c bus or an air-conditioned bus from Kandy to Dambulla…
We had a great time during our 3 days in Kandy, Sri Lanka. In fact, the only downside was our accommodation! We went for daily walks around the lake, took in all the sites, and ate the delicious food. Kandy had lots of wildlife especially around the lake and we even saw a few monitor lizards!
