2017 Hot Air Balooning over cultural triangle of Sri Lanka

balonsThe Hot Air Balloon festival is held in March and gives ballooning enthusiasts a chance to fly over the cultural triangle of Sri Lanka. Organized by the Ceylon Airship and Balloon Club, the balloon ride goes around Sigiriya, Hambanthota and Colombo. The slow pace of the balloon ride also offers a change from the fast pace of airplane or helicopter rides. Perhaps one of the most exciting parts is the uncertainty of exactly where the balloon will land. Nowadays, Hot Air Ballooning is safe as can be, with the balloon itself made of tear and heat-resistant material, and is installed with GPS, fire extinguishers and other contingency measures.
