There are only three trains from Kandy to Colombo early in the morning.

The very first train to Colombo is departing from Kandy railway station at 5 ‘O clock.

In addition, there is an Intercity express train to Colombo at 6.15 a.m from Kandy railway station. This is a good choice as it is not a crowded train. You can have a lot of space to take photos and enjoy the view.

However, there is another train leaving at 6.20 a.m. It is also a normal train and cannot be guaranteed about the crowd.

Is it worth to see?

Yes, of course, it is worth to see. This is the only hill country railroad in Sri Lanka. As well as most beautiful scenics can be seen only by traveling on this railway line.

And also there is a bonus in rainy seasons. As the railway line lies in the mountain slopes, then more and more temporary waterfalls can be seen.

Yes, this is the country with lots of wonders. Sri Lanka.
