What's Special About

The flight takes off as dawn breaks over the nearby mountains. Witness the town enveloped in mist and smoke from the locals cooking fires. The sight of the pagodas and temples rising above the mist as you float past is breath-taking. It is so atmospheric you will be lost for words. It is an amazing sensation to glide silently across such a beautiful landscape.  

Definitely the best way to appeciate the temples and pagodas is ballooning over Bagan. This also once in a life time experience with bird eye view above the sky that should be shared with your loved one.

Flight Details :

Your adventure starts with a short journey in one of romantic converted vintage buses to dedicated launch sites. 

The growing light reveals the teams busy at work preparing your balloon against a backdrop of ancient temples shrouded in mist. 

There is time for tea, coffee and refreshments before the all important safety briefing. 

With the balloons now standing upright, it is time to climb on board, where helpful crews are on hand to assist you into the basket. 

The balloon is guided by gentle winds not exceeding 15 mph, allowing passengers a serene and peaceful bird's-eye view of ancient temples drifting by. 

Using his skill and years of local knowledge in Bagan the pilot is able to guide the balloon to a gentle landing where our friendly and experienced crew will be on hand with fruit, fresh pastries and a glass or two of champagne to complete the post flight celebration.
