Hot Air Ballooning though relatively new to Sri Lanka, is perhaps the most exiting way of seeing the country by floating over Sri Lanka’s exceedingly beautiful landscape including plains carpeted by verdant paddy fields of varying green hues, homesteads of farming communities, lakes, rivers and even world heritage sites. This is an opportunity not to be missed.
Ballooning rides normally start from Dambulla and from Galle, though new routes could be added from time to time. As the security situation has improved, balloon operators are looking at introducing more routes. A typical balloon flight is made up of a total travel experience of approx 4-hrs duration. Since Hot Air Ballooning is heavily dependant on weather conditions the best season for flying is October to April when light winds and lack of rain prevail.
