The site of the festival Galapita is located 17 km south of Buttala and 30 km north of Kataragama.

Both of this major town are well connected with all others Sri Lankan cities.

The best way to get around the Island is by car, bike or by bus.

You could hire a car with a driver or hire just the car.

This is possible to be done at the airport.

Public bus lines are covering 80% of the Sri Lankan roads however catching a private bus is more fast and comfortable.
