one day trip

by hikerroeland Online Now Mar 17, 2013 at 7:39 AM

We are visiting Kalutara in April and we would like to make a one day trip from Kalutara; I love taking pictures (especially from the local people and their habits and work)

1) I would like to visit (Beruwala, fish market, mosque and lighthouse.) Which would be the best?

2) We would like to go to Galle and visit the town.

3) we would like to do a trip up the Madhu Ganga .

What do you think? Is this possible ? What price should I expect to pay for this trip with a driver? For 2 people.

    The options that you mentioned can all easily be done in a day although you would have to stretch the day for Galle. I love that town but I guess it is not exactly what you are looking for unless you drive a little further south, there you have markets by the road side, just a little outside of Galle. Beruwela is nice and it would be my choice, the mosque is the oldest mosque in Sri Lanka and I took some very nice pictures there. The Madhu Ganga is also interesting but it has become a little too touristy. You can always stop on the road down to Beruwela and get some good shots at the beaches, maybe you are lucky and get to see some fishermen at work. I am sorry but I cannot help you with the costs....

    all places are fine, but the traveling part cant say anything, some charge per Kilometer, some charge for the whole trip, Distance to Galle is about 120km, if you hire a car Rs.50 or Rs.60 per km.
