5 day itinerary

Hi. We have about 5 days after we leave Unawatuna and are thinking about heading first to Nuwara for 2 nights and using it as a base to see the sights in that area,including Ella. Then Kandy for 2 nights,again see the usual things (elephants etc) and use it as a base for

Sigriya etc. is that do-able? We have one extra day to play with. We don't want to rush and would rather miss out on seeing/visiting something than cramming it all in! Any advice appreciated!

Better stay at Ella. More to do/see and better climate than Nuwara Eliya.

You can do a day trip from Kandy to Sigiriya. The drive by car is approx. 3 hours each way and the climb i s recommend before 10.30 am or after 3 pm.
