Activity description

Explore mystical Myanmar from the sky on this private hot air balloon safari.

Spend two days witnessing the ancient Wonders of the World from the privacy of your own hot air balloon on this ultimate adventure across Inle Lake and Pindaya. Discover scenic Myanmar - one of the last frontiers for true travel nomads, this region’s untamed landscape and hidden treasures make it best explored from the air – ensuring you leave with memories of the country’s authentic, eccentric and spiritual soul.

Location
This activity takes place in two of Myanmar’s most popular tourist attractions – Inle Lake and Pindaya. Your tour will start close to Nyaungshwe (Heho nearest airport) with a tour of Inle Lake – renowned for its surefooted fisherman, and move to Pindaya – a Buddhist pilgrimage site in the Shan Mountains.

Activity
An incredible 2-day adventure through Southern Shan State, this private hot air balloon safari explores one of Myanmar”s most beautiful and culturally diverse regions. Focusing the itinerary on the areas of Inle Lake and Pindaya, this sightseeing excursion by balloon is a luxury experience for two people - allowing you to venture off the beaten path and gain a unique perspective on this diverse and evolving country.

Day One -  Sunrise Balloon Flight over Inle Lake
Starting your day before dawn, get picked up from your accommodation for a hot air balloon flight over Inle Lake – soaring 5,000FT above the lake as local fisherman scoop up the catch of the day and paddle through the incredible floating gardens. After landing, the crew serve you with a private breakfast on the lake. Optional extras include a cooking class or Indein boat trip. In the late afternoon, drive to Pindaya for a bonfire dinner and one night’s stay in shared accommodation in a traditional bamboo hut.

Day Two - Sunrise Balloon Flight over Pindaya
Your second dawn rise will see you transferred to the launch site in the Shan hills for a sunrise balloon flight over Pindaya and the Shan Mountains. Fly along the mountain valley, passing tiny Shan hamlets and hilltop pagodas before a post-flight cooked private breakfast in the fields surrounding Pindaya. In the late morning, you will discover Pindaya Cave, home to more than 8000 Buddha images. Picnic lunch en route including house drinks, coffee and tea.

Your adventure ends at Heho Airport or drop off at your arranged hotel in the Nyaung Shwe area.
