I arrive in Mumbai aound 22:00 on 12/07/19. I will go to Villa Parle station and take a train to Vasai Rd for the Saturday morning 03:40 departure to Ernakulam JN. From there I will head to Ernakulam N where I can take a train to Coimbatore on sunday morning arrIving around lunchtime.
From there a bus to Palani,which seem to be frequent enough and then on to Kodaikanal. I am not sure how often they depart to Kodaikanal but with luck I will arrive sunday night.
I have booked a return flight from Madurai to Colombo departing thursday 18/07 and returning on 1/08. I stay overnight in Madurai and return to Mumbai the next day.
I booked my tickets with Cleartrip for better or for worse.
In case I have missed something, please comment.
In 2014 I came into Mumbai and transferred to the domestic terminal and stayed overnight. I flew down to Trivarandrum the next morning by which time I was almost dead from boredom.
I arrive in Colombo on the 13th of july instead of the 18th. The plan was to depart to Trincomalee on the 20th,onwards to Anuradhapura and Kandy staying 2 night's each,then on to Ella for 4 nights, back to
Colombo for the last night. My accommodation is booked but can be cancelled. Part of me is thinking of heading first to Ella for 3 nights,squeezing the rest of the trip in but spending 3 nights in Kandy before
the final night in Colombo.
So much to see. Would like a little advice,please.

Trinco (specifically Nilaveli) is worthy of 3 nights.
Kandy is great, but again 2 nights should be enough.
Aragum Bay is also worth visiting if you can fit it in after Trinco.
Perhaps I will head first to Ella for 2 days,then Nuwara Elisa, Kandy,Dambulla and on to,Trincomalee. After that I can start scratching my head.
I am not a beach person and I quit the drink 2 years ago,so partying does nothing for me. Perhaps I should read my Sri Lanka guide,for some inspiration.
For a little Island,there seems to be a lot to do. I think a visit to one of the nature parks is a must.
I am going to Ella for 2 nights .
3 nights in the following order: Nuwara Eliya, Trincomalee,Anuradhapura,Dambulla.
Kandy for 2 nights and a final night in Colombo.
I have asked for someone to book me a train passage from Nuwara Eliya via Colombo to Trincomalee.
So that is the plan.
