The big Buddha will give you a great view out over Kandy. Well worth the climb. It costs 200 rps each. Get a hindu blessing while you are there (if the hindu temple is open)

If you are energetic climb Adam's Peak. The climb starts at 2:30am so that you are there for sunrise at 5:30am. Over 5000 steps, but well worth the effort.
