Balloon ride was an amazing experience. The view from up was superb. The sun rise, flying peacocks and eagles, the beautiful fauna and flora....You can see the true beauty of Sri Lanka! I was so lucky to experience all of this.

Just a quick email to say thank you so much for all your help with our holiday to Sri Lanka. We had a fantastic time!
The balloon flight was amazing! I had actually proposed to my girlfriend the night before so it made a perfect celebration.
We fell in love with Sri Lanka and will definitely be back in the future!
Kind Regards, Jonathan
Whole trip was great fun, but ballooning & scuba diving was simply the best !. Also we have got many enquiries for ballooning in Sri Lanka.
Thanks, Amit, 11.11.11
The feeling was unique we loved waving and greeting the villagers below and passing sweets down to the kids when you lowered the balloon ! It’s thrilling, words can’t express, everyone must just do it !

INTRODUCTION TO BALLOONING
Treat yourself to a hot air balloon ride over the beautiful countryside of Sri Lanka. There are few pleasures as unforgettable as drifting gently over breathtaking views. It's an experience you'll never forget !
Greet the rising sun as it paints the landscape with wonderful colors while your balloon inflates majestically. Feel the excitement as you lift off and drift effortlessly over the spectacular scenery. As the climbing goes on unnoticed, find yourself amidst endless horizons of rugged mountains and green fields with only the burners to disturb the peace.
Watch your pilot gradually lower the balloon to inches above the evergreen trees as you pick leaves or touch the tree tops, spot a bird or an animal waking to the daybreak.
A Hot Air Balloon Flight is a participative activity and you can assist in the inflation and the deflation of the balloon if you wish.
SRI Lanka Ballooning is a licensed Hot Air Balloon project in Sri Lanka under the Civil Aviation Authority and relevant Ministries. Ballooning is a form of aviation, one cannot operate without approvals. Our balloon registrations are:
- 4R-ISE - 8 passenger
- 4R-OSE - 16 passenger
Incorporated in January 2010, although young, we have the most experienced Sri Lankan balloon crew with experience since 2003 and the only Pilot who has been flying balloons here since 2006. He is also the 1st Pilot to do the 1st flight in Homagama in the Colombo District in April 2010.
Branching out from UK and choosing a name which is appropriate to the country of operation, the name Sun Rise in Lanka Ballooning (Pvt) Ltd. was picked, in short to say SRI Lanka Ballooning. This highlights the country and the operation in one line to the overseas travelers.
Believing in safety first, our Pilots are hand-picked for the job. Each flight is made memorable for every passenger, be it complementary or paid, the toast of a successful flight is done as an unbroken tradition for every flight and to every passenger at landing.
We deliver what we promise !
