Ballooning in Myanmar
One of the most spectacular ways to see Myanmar is from a balloon, skimming over tree tops, close to historical monuments or fabulous landscapes. Myanmar has a range of options for those keen to mark their trip with a unique perpective of the 'Golden Land'. Balloon rides can be arranged in Bagan - close to the famous archaelogical site, at Inle Lake - where you can see the lake in all its glory, at Mandalay - to see the former palace and other monuments, at Pindaya - overlooking the town, or at Ngapali Beach - where you can get a good view of the coast and the surrounding countryside.
We are fortunate to work with a couple of well established balloon companies called 'Oriental Ballooning' and 'Balloons over Bagan'. Both have excellent pilots, many of whom are commercially licensed in Britain or Australia, and great back up teams who look after you before and after the exhilarating flight.
Due to weather conditions it is usually only possible to do a balloon ride between October and March, and if you would like more information on how to include a balloon ride in your itinerary please get in touch with one of our experts.Back to experiences in Myanmar
