Sri Lanka Drone Tour


Sri Lanka from above - Cinematic aerial film DJI Mavic 2 Pro


Following a series of suicide bombings in early 2019, the South Asian island nation of Sri Lanka imposed a total ban on drones out of concern that UAV's could potentially be weaponized. Contributor DigitalTravelCouple visited the country before the ban went into effect, and created this stunning video using a DJI Mavic Pro 2 drone. The video features footage of some of the top sights of this tropical paradise, including the Nine Arches Bridge, Diyaluma Falls, and more. This video was a DVOW winner in December 2019.

Top contributor Thedronetrip created this stunning drone video from the Indian Ocean island nation of Sri Lanka. Much of the video was shot in the interior of the island, a land of tea plantation, elephant preserves, and hilltop fortresses.

Sri Lanka's Marine Wildlife

It is reasonably well known that the Indian Ocean island nation of Sri Lanka is among the most biodiverse countries on earth.  What is perhaps less well known is that this label extends to the Indian Ocean waters off the coast of this small country, located just to the south of India.  In this video, contributor and pilot Summittosea gives us a look at this Sri Lankan offshore biodiversity in the form of blue whales - the largest creature on earth.  The drone footage of this graceful animal is stunning.

Sigiriya: Sri Lanka's Rock Fortress

While its tourism industry has grown in recent years, Sri Lanka is still far enough off the beaten path that it appeals to more adventurous travelers.  Case in point is this group of travelers who drove their Royal Enfield motorcycles across this island nation in the Indian Ocean.  Using a DJI Phantom 4 Pro drone, contributor Ablbaset memorialized the trip with this amazing aerial video.  While a road trip like this is not for the faint of heart, you can ride along from the comfort (and safety!) of your own screen.

Kalutara Chaitya is a modern Buddhist Stupa on the southwestern coast of Sri Lanka.  Seen here in this drone video by deathstalker, its importance derives from its proximity to the Kalutara Bodhiya, a Bodhi (sacred fig tree), one of the most important sites in Sri Lankan Buddhism.  The tree is believed to be one of 32 saplings from the Jaya Sri Maha Bodhi fig tree, which was planted in the third century BC and is believed to be the world's oldest living tree.  The temple was completed in 1974, following a ten year construction period.
