Hot air ballooning in Sri Lanka and soaring high into the clouds is truly an exhilarating experience. Though the activity was introduced relatively recently to Sri Lanka, ballooning is amongst the most exciting and incredible ways to explore the country's dramatic landscapes and scenery. With Ceylon Tours, travellers may embark on hot air ballooning expeditions and soar into the clouds high above the ground – as high as 2000 feet into the air – to feel the freshness of the cool open air. Hot air ballooning season is generally between the months of November to April – when weather conditions are ideal and pose no difficulty for ballooning. Many sites are available for hot air ballooning, with Kandalama, Dambulla and other areas in the cultural triangle being some of the most popular ballooning spots amongst many travellers.
