Touring highlights include checking out the country’s incredible sights from the air, with operators offering hot air ballooning in Sri Lanka’s highly acclaimed cultural triangle in the centre of the island with the tour generally starting at Kandalama, rising to about 2,000 to 3,000 feet, providing panoramic views and ending in Dambulla.

The cultural triangle of course is impressive even when not viewed from air and tour operators offer extensive packages covering the North Central towns of Anuradhapura, Polonnaruwa, Sigiriya and Dambulla where remarkable archaeological ruins are located and bring to life Sri Lanka’s long and diverse history to travellers.
