Hot Air Balloon Safari Pushkar Fair
Hot Air Ballooning during Pushkar fair is once in a lifetime experience. It is also the most exhilarating way to see Pushkar, moving gently over the vast encampment on the dunes, drifting over the holy lake, high temples and holy places.
You fly with India's first fully licensed and approved Hot Air Balloon company, that offers a very unique & amazing Balloon Safari experience with highly experienced international pilots.Flights will be operated twice a day; at 0500 in the morning and 1630 in the evening.
What is the duration of the Balloon flight? How high does the balloon fly?
The whole experience takes about 3 hours,and the time in the air is close to an hour. Balloons fly at different heights, depending on the weather and the topography of the area. We fly up to 1,200 feet high.
What happens if the weather is unsuitable for ballooning?
Guests' safety is our primary concern. Hot Air Ballooning is weather a dependent activity, Even though weather conditions in India are idyllic, we will inform the guests if the weather is unsuitable.
How many people will be in the balloon?
A standard flight would have 4 - 8 persons.
Is there an age or weight restriction? Are pregnant women allowed onboard a hot air balloon flight?
Children ages 5 years and above and who are more than 1.5 m tall are allowed and there is no upper age limit. One must be fit enough to stand for at least an hour. Pregnant ladies are not permitted.
What do we see from the balloon? What is the experience of flying?
It is such an experience that can't easily be put in words. The entire process, right from watching the balloon being inflated to taking off and viewing all those majestic landscapes, is mesmerising. You fly over the Pushkar town, holy lake, high temples and villages but the most regular and the magnificent view is of people, particularly the children running after the balloon and the ladies dressed in colourful Rajasthani clothes.
