Hot Air Ballooning

A ride in a hot air balloon is sheer exhileration!

There is nothing quite like the uplifting sensation of a balloon ride. The gentle sway of the balloon borne upon the winds with a panaromic 360 degree bird's eye view of the surroundings is an amazing experience. Do not miss the unforgettable experience of hot air ballooning.

The ballon is a very large sized nylon fabric bag and hot air is filled in it by lighting the burner unit. As hot air fills in, the balloon keeps inflating until it is fully upright and about 7 storeys tall. The gondola is a basket attached to the balloon in which the passengers sit in comfort. As the hot air fills to the maximum capacity, the ballon lifts off gently.

The air currents and air patterns determine the balloon’s travel. At all times, the balloon is navigated by an experienced pilot who by gauging the wind direction and air currents is able to steer the balloon’s movement.

As the hot air balloon silently floats high above mountains, rivers, forts, forests and fields, passengers in the gondola enjoy the magnificent and spectacular vista!
