Hot Air Ballooning

View photos View photos


Hot air ballooning over the Cultural Triangle at sunrise is a surreal and beautiful experience.

Departing from Kandalama at 06:00 you’ll cruise at an altitude of between 1,000 – 2,000 feet and on a clear day you are rewarded with long reaching views across the whole of central Sri Lanka. Flying over the jungle you may see elephants roaming freely, a variety of birds, wild life, water buffaloes standing in the paddy fields and monkeys swinging from the trees.

After an exhilarating flight over the jungle you will be welcomed on landing by friendly villagers who are happy to meet and greet you. Your Pilot will toast the flight with a glass of champagne after which our transport will take you back to your hotel.

It’s a really peaceful experience and offers a new birds eye perspective of the cultural triangle.

Passengers need to be at the launch site by 5:30 am.


The cost is US $200 per person.
