Please note: This itinerary is designed to give you an idea of what to expect on the tour but is not set in stone. What we actually do on a given day is flexible and can be tailored based on the interests of the group. Moreover, it is important to note that there have been delays in the train timings quite often. The purchase of train tickets cannot be guaranteed currently due to the process in place within the Sri Lanka Railways Department especially during peak periods. Travel tickets are issued 30 days in advance of travel, are limited and are extremely difficult to obtain. In the unlikely event a ticket/s cannot be obtained, we will of course make the necessary refunds & the clients will travel by road.
