Uppuveli

Getting there & away

Irakkandy-bound minibuses from Trinco’s bus terminal run roughly every half-hour, supplemented by occasional small CTB buses. All pass through Uppuveli (Rs 10, 20 minutes) and Nilaveli (Rs 25, 45 minutes). Three-wheelers from Uppuveli cost Rs 150 to Trinco (Rs 200 at night), Rs 250 to Nilaveli, Rs 400 return to Kanniyai hot wells, and around Rs 1000 to loop via Kanniyai to Velgam Vihara and back.
