Getting around
Cheapest way to get to Habarana would be by public Transport(Train/Bus) However ( other than for individual Travellers ) this mode of transport could be time consuming and inconvenient. Specially for Family/Group travel, Recommend travel by Car/Van/Coach. On settling down at Upie's Folly., to get around, use of Three Wheelers ( Known as Tuk Tuks ) would be cheap and available in plenty. If you do not have your own vehicle, cars /vans could be hired from Habarana. To visit the National Wild Life parks ,a 4 W/Drive vehicle is necessary and that too can be hired from Habarana
