Hot Air Ballooning In Sri Lanka – Bird’s Eye View Of The Island

Lanka from above? The bird’s eye view of the island is simply breathtaking!

When

The hot air balloon rides are possible between the months from December to March, when the weather is quite pleasant and there’s a good gust of wind blowing through.

Where

Hot air balloon rides usually take off from Dambulla, and the wide open unobstructed spaces are ideal for enjoying views from the sky!

How

As this is a relatively new activity for the island, only a few tour agencies such as Nkar Travel House will be able to organize a tour for a hot air balloon in Sri Lanka.

Flight Plan

Usually hot air balloon rides last for about an hour while the entire excursion which includes transfers can last for about 3.5 hours.

Prepare

Do keep in mind that it can get quite warm during your ride, so remember to dress comfortably with light cotton clothes, preferably. Although your ride is mostly dependant on the weather for the day, wait for the morning call to confirm this. Caps and sunglasses are encourage to protect your eyes and head from the strong sun rays.
