Next August we will go through the hills going from the cultural triangle in the North to Yala NP in the South, with private car.
How rationalising the visit of the places mentioned in the subject?
One rough plan could be:
day 1: coming from Habarana-Dambulla, visiting something in Kandy and night in Kandy.
day 2: from Kandy to Nuwara Eliya. Night in Nuwara Eliya.
day 3: very early morning in World's end, then towards Ella for some visiting there. Night in Ella.
day 4: some more visit in Ella, the to Uda Walawe NP for afternoon safari. Night near Uda Walawe NP.
day 5: towards Yala NP.
This means changing hotel room *every* night, which is quite tiring.
But I don't see alternatives:
- one night in Kandy looks necessary for the holy teeth and for the botanical garden;
- one night in Nuwara Elia looks necessary for visiting World's end the following day;
- one night in Uda Walawe looks necessary as when the afternoon safari is over it is probably too late and too dark for going directly to Tissa (Yala NP).
The only night I could skip is the one in Ella, but I read good things of that area and I wouldn't skip it.
Please, any idea to improve my itinerary!
