Hot Air Ballooning

As the multi-coloured hot-air balloon drifts silently above the forest, adventure takes on a whole new meaning.

Startled by the noise of a sudden burst of gas keeping the balloon aloft, a couple of peacocks take flight directly below the balloon’s basket, their outrageously long iridescent blue and emerald tail feathers streaming behind like a psychedelic jet stream. Several deer dart nervously across a clearing below, but the small herd of elephants continues feeding, utterly unfazed by this aerial intruder. Flying over the jungle you may see water buffaloes standing in the paddy fields and monkeys swinging from the trees.

Balloons that travel with the wind, make for one of the most surreal and tranquil sensations of flight. Following the initial adrenaline rush of the takeoff, one could settle down to absorb the wonder of the colorful earth below. Hot air Balloning Season In Sri lanka – November to April
