Hot Air Ballooning in Nepal

Hot Air Ballooning offers you unique bird’s eye views of the picturesque Himalayas and the rolling hills beyond the Kathmandu valley. Recently this sport has become very popular among tourists since it affords the most spectacular views of the Kathmandu Valley and the Himalayan ranges towering in the background. It is a superb way to view the Himalayas (from over 6000m up), and the view of the valley is equally breathtaking on the clear day.

After long time expectation, Hot Air Ballooning lunched at Pokhara on 17th-November-2018 with two craft from Italy. The flight operates every morning and noon two times in a day except monsoon season by expert Indian pilots and ground handling by local specialist. Recently the flight conducted from two places Dhampus and Landruk and will land at Hemja and Mardi Khola river bank. In this an hour flight, you will enjoy fly above the snowcapped mountains, beautiful Pokhara city and tranquil lakes as your life time experience with family, friends and beloved. Each craft have right passenger capacity.

The Hot Air Balloons come to life in the morning light and have been described as "a sleeping giant decorated with the all seeing eyes of the Buddha" as it ripples, stretches, expands and readies itself for its load of passengers. You feel exhilarated upon its gentle departure and one hardly feels the ascent. This is an ancient and romantic form of flight with no whirring or whining of modern engine. Nor are there any airplane wings to obscure the most magnificent of views. Like one agency puts it, "even if you do not climb Mt. Everest, from the perfect safety and comfort of a wicker basket, you will feel that you have reached the top of the world in effortless security through it." The best months for a Hot Air Balloon flight are October - November although the season extends from October to April also. The flights take place daily during the season, and are dependent on the wind for its direction (eastward or westward across the valley). The landing could be anyplace - mostly in the terraced paddies that stretch out across the fringes of the valley, usually attracting a large impromptu gathering of villagers checking to see what has fallen out of the sky!

The Hot Air Balloon flight takes off from Thimi, near the historic town of Bhaktapur, one of the three principalities of the Kathmandu Valley and perhaps the most medieval of them all. From there, depending on which way the wind blows, it takes you on a trip that gives you a bird's eye view of Kathmandu valley with astonishing mountains view of hillside farm terraces. We at “Nepal Mother House” are more than glad to arrange a Hot Air Balloon trip for youa in hopes of creating an unforgettable experience in Nepal.

This is my 3rd trek with you - the first being the Annapurna Circuit and then a tour of the Everest region, starting at Jiri and then trekking up to Gokyo, going over Cho La, up to Kala Pattar and then up the Chukhung valley.
