Hot Air Ballooning in Sri Lanka

Overview

Treat yourself to a hot air balloon ride over the beautiful countryside of Sri Lanka. Enjoying the breathtaking views as the earth unfolds it’s beauty with the rising sun over the Cultural Triangle.

There are few pleasures as unforgettable as drifting gently over breathtaking views. Feel the excitement as you lift off and drift effortlessly over the spectacular scenery. As the climbing goes on unnoticed, find yourself amidst endless horizons of rugged mountains and green fields with only the burners to disturb the peace.

Watch your pilot gradually lower the balloon to inches above the evergreen trees as you pick leaves or touch the tree tops, spot a bird or an animal waking to the daybreak.

Flights take off at sunrise and floating at heights of 500 to 2000 feet on average, this feeling of peace and tranquility is apparent from the extent of sighs and smiles as the earth seems to slowly descend below you whilst the views rapidly expand.

While you effortlessly drift over the treetops, wildlife, lakes and rivers, cultural sites, local urban homesteads, landmarks like Sigiriya Rock, Golden Buddha and many more are in the view.

It's an experience you will never forget !

Season : November to April every year.
