Culture by Balloon

A unique way to observe the phenomenal remnants of the island’s ancient civilisation as you soar overhead from the peace and tranquillity and unique perspective of a hot air balloon! It is a dramatic and rewarding experience made even better by the warm and friendly welcome that you receive from villagers when the balloon finally lands.

  • Rise above the centre of the island's ancient civilization as dawn breaks
  • Enjoy the top view of this ancient part of Sri Lanka
  • Get a unique perspective from the air, witnessing ruins, relics and jungle
  • An unparalleled sunrise experience

Explore the ruins of the ancient times and you get the birds-eye view from the hot air balloon. It is one of the most unique experiences that the country has to offer. In this lifetime experience see a large number of isolated ancient temples amidst the thickly forested area, across the plains, emerge through the mist as the sun wakes up.

Start before the sun rises and ascend through the mist and beguiling hints of sunlight. Soak in the bountiful of most amazing sights and sunrise. From above you can admire the Sigiriya Rock, the area of Dambulla with the beautiful lake of Kandalama and the Minneriya National Park, where the most numerous elephant herds of the island live in freedom. Drifting gently over the cultural triangle, or a wildlife park in a hot air balloon will be unforgettable. End your ride and disembark from your basket as you receive a greeting of champagne and reflect on the experience of the lifetime.
