Hot Air Ballooning.
Some good news just in: the adventurous can once again look forward to soaring high above the untouched wilderness, ancient ruins and rock temples of the Cultural Triangle. From November, Red Dot is once again able to offer hot air balloon safaris from Kandalama to Dambulla. Galle is another spectacular location for hot air ballooning. A typical trip would start at dawn and last for about an hour depending on the prevailing winds. Flights depart about 15kms inland from Galle and rises to about 2,000ft – 3,000ft providing a panoramic view of Galle’s inland lakes and waterways, beautiful south coast shoreline, and the 17th century Dutch Fort. Ballooning trips are offered daily throughout the season from November to April when the winds are light and the sky at its bluest. For further information: Click Here
