Hot Air Balloons is a very popular tourist attraction across the world and same is the case in India. Because Hot Air Balloons offer a slow and steady view of the city, river or valley beneath.
Hot Air Balloons are available a little away from cities as they need a little time to reach the desired height.
Hot Air Balloon is available in India at Lonavala, Goa, Agra, Jaipur, Jaisalmer, Jodhpur, Pushkar, Manali, Delhi, Bhopal, Darjeeling and Hampi.
We have only three Companies offering Hot Air Balloons in India
- Skywaltz (Jaipur, Pushkar, Lonavala and Neemrana)
- Tiger Balloon Safaris (Goa)
- Tethered Hot Air Balloon, Rishikesh
India also has two Hot Air Ballooning festivals.
The cost of Hot air Ballooning in India is around Rs. 10,000 per person for one light. This is half the price of Hot Air Ballooning any where in the world. And one third of United Kingdom, Switzerland, USA and Italy.
Normally, in a balloon there are 8 people, one pilot and seven tourists. The flight is about 1 hour. The take off point is fixed but the landing point is not as it depends on the wind. There will be a vehicle following the balloon that takes you back from the landing point to the starting point.
The balloon flies at a height of around 500 meters above ground level.
There are only two time slots for a Hot Air Balloon Ride and that is 5:30 AM or 4:30 PM.
In India, you can fly in a balloons from September to May, as these services shut down during monsoons.
