Some Inforamtion on Badulla

BADULLA, the capital of the UVA Province is located 50 kms east from Nuwara Eliya, on the eastern side of the Central Hill Range. Besides of 'beeing on the way' to the East- and Southeast coast, Badulla lies outside the common tourist routes, is unspoilt and interesting. 
Badulla can be reached by road or by train. It is the last station of the old English Railway Track which takes you from Colombo over the lowlands across the highest hills descending again to the altitude of  2200 feet, to Badulla town. It is an exciting, beautiful but long journey of ten to twelve hours.
Half faster -and not less interesting- is to travel by car: either over Kandy and the magnificent Mahaveli Sanctuary, or over Ratnapura and the high hills thriugh the Haputale Pass and Bandarawela. The distance from Colombo is similar both ways -a little over 200kms. A third route over Hatton and Nur'Eliya is slightly longer though not less beautiful.
