About Kandy

Colombo-Pinnawala-Kandy-DambullaAt 5am, we took the most affordable mode of transport in Sri Lanka -- train. We booked our tickets for Kandy and got into the train. We expected to get a seat in this less populated country, but all we could see is all people - fishermen and green grocers carrying their portable shops/mats and gearing up for the day's business. The best part of the train journey was the rail line, which was built just along the coast. So we could see the sea waves hitting on the train coaches. Seemed interesting as well as a bit scary at the same time! After standing for an hour we were really tired; Kandy was 5.5 hours from Colombo and it was impossible for us to stand for that much time! Hence there was a change in plan. Rambukkana was on the way between Colombo and Kandy, where we were supposed to visit the Pinnawala Elephant orphanage. So we got down at Rambukkana at 9am. We had some breakfast nearby and booked autos for Pinnawala. We booked tickets (3000 LKR/person) kept our belongings in the office and headed towards the elephants.
