Hot Air Ballooning

A relatively new attraction in the heart of the cultural triangle, Hot Air Ballooning has quickly become one of the more sought-after attractions in Sigiriya.

Begin your soaring journey in the wee hours of the morning and experience a bird’s eye view of the ancient kingdom below. Sail over the rural villages and spot people going about their daily rituals, while the sun slowly rises in the distance. You will also be able to see majestic elephants crossing the open plains and water buffalo gathered around watering holes and lakes.

Reaching heights of about 500-feet, Hot Air Balloon rides have become quite popular for proposals, as well as birthday and anniversary celebrations. A glass of celebratory champagne served after you land is the perfect way to end this exciting and memorable experience.

Take note that there are age and height restrictions for passengers, for safety reasons.
