How to get there

From the central bus stand in Colombo take the 261 bus to Mahara. Ask for a ticket to Akbar Town. Get off at Akbar Town and walk up the hill towards Mahara about 300M just before the Rosevilla Pharmacy on the right hand side is my recidance. This will take you about 45 mts and cost Rs 28 ! That's about 0.2 us$. The famous tuk's ( 3 wheel taxi will will cost about 4 us$ and take about 25 mts.From the airport take the Paliyagoda exit towards Wattala. At the Wattala junction turn right in to Avariwatta road, pass the railway crossing, bear left at the next fork towards Mahara. Akbar Town is about 1 km from here. This should not take you more than 25 mts. Suggest you use a airport taxi from the counter.
