Cross the Border Between Heaven and Earth

October 6, 2015 by Khiri Travel | Filed Under: , , , , ,

As an island, Sri Lanka has no physical borders with other nations. Our perception of borders is most dictated by our senses which are, in turn, defined by our point of view on the ground. So to remove our terrestrial bias, we offer our clients the ability to soar beyond them.

Khiri Travel Sri Lanka likes to promote the best way to see the beauty of the area in and around Sri Lanka’s cultural triangle: with a bird’s eye view from the basket of a hot air balloon. Breath-taking aerial views are on offer from this lofty and peaceful vantage point. Due to the dependence on wind moving this floating conveyor, each tour takes a different path and is therefore unique.

Down below, the landscape is dotted with impressive UNESCO World Heritage sites such as the ancient sacred monuments of Anuradhapura and Polonnaruwa, the last royal capital of Sri Lanka at Kandy and the imposing monolithic rock mountains of Sigiriya and Dambulla. The challenge is to spot these important historical and cultural sites amidst their surroundings of jungle, cultivated land and urban centers.

The fun starts in the early morning, where we will gather at the starting point and assist the crew to get the 350,000 cubic foot envelope filled with hot air. All pilots are trained and licensed by the Sri Lanka Civil Aviation Authority and will brief all passengers on the necessary safety precautions. Imagine the exhilarating experience of soaring high above the countryside thousands of feet high in the air!
