Hot air ballooning over the Cultural Triangle



Enjoy romantic and panoramic views of Sri Lanka’s most important historical sites from a hot air balloon, which launches next to the serene Kandalama Reservoir. 

Watch the sunrise over the east, just as you set off into the air, and take in the view of the vast stretches of mountains, thick jungles and waterways that make up the area’s magnificent and diverse landscapes. You’ll float gently over the Cultural Triangle, which comprises Sri Lanka’s most ancient kingdoms. You are bound to see the grandiose Sigiriya Rock Fortress, the peaceful Kandalama Tank, and the gleaming Golden Temple of Dambulla during your ride. With no set route, you will be able to see many more landmarks of the area.

Once you land back from your ride, you’ll be greeted by our staff, who will welcome you with champagne - a dreamy ending for what will be one of the most enchanting experiences of your life.
