Step out of Badulla to go to Mahiyanganaya and see Mahiyangana Temple, which is approximately 1h 30 min away. There's still lots to do: take in the views from Bogoda Wooden Bridge, take in the dramatic scenery at Dunhinda Falls, take in the spiritual surroundings of Dhowa Rock Temple, and make a trip to Muthiyangana Raja Maha Viharaya.

Nestled between mountains in inland Sri Lanka, Kandy proudly bears its World Heritage Site designation while remaining culturally independent and colorfully picturesque.
Change things up with these side-trips from Kandy: Matale (Sri Muthumariamman Temple & Euphoria Spice and Herbal), Dawson Tower (in Kadugannawa) and Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage (in Pinnawala). And it doesn't end there: tour the pleasant surroundings at Royal Botanical Gardens, appreciate the history behind Bahiravokanda Vihara Buddha Statue, explore the activities along Kandy Lake, and admire the sheer force of Ramboda Waterfall.
