Take on the skies of Myanmar with Oriental Ballooning’s executive and personal service that will truly become an unforgettable memoir of what Myanmar’s beautiful landscapes have to offer. Feel at ease in their traditional wicker basket compartments which you will only share with another person or couple.
Choose to fly from either four of these scenic locations:
Fly over this unique world wonder and take in the beauty of the stupas and temples below you. With mountains to the east and west, and the Irrawaddy River on the horizon, your flight of a life time will take you over the temples and fields of this historic plain. Your journey begins before sunrise where you will be picked up and taken to one of the launch sites which will give you the best views just in time for sunrise where everything that surrounds you will be in various beautiful hues of orange, including the sky.
Look down at this hustle and bustling city that is considered to be the centre of Burmese cultures. Founded over 155 years ago by King Mindon, the old Palace still remains in the city center, surrounded by a moat and city wall. The Irrawaddy River flows to the west of the town whilst the mountains of the famous British hill-station, Maymo, frames the city to the east. The Mandalay fleet will give you the opportunity too see this city from a total different perspective and see the busy town start its day from above.
Nestled between the mountains of the southern Shan State lies one of the country’s top destinations Inle Lake. With the stilted villages, One-legged rowing fishermen, floating vegetable gardens, and Southern Shan Hills as its backdrop, it all plays part in this stunning panoramic views. Getting a bird’s eye view on Inle Lake is definitely a unique experience and a contrast to the usual sightseeing on the long-tail boats.
The newcomer among ballooning in Myanmar will allow you views to the unspoiled coastline of the Bay of Bengal drifting gently over untouched jungles and hills. Enjoy the bird view glimpses of bustling markets, golden temples while drifting low at tree top level over pristine jungle and from high above the hills enjoy the view of Ngapali’s costline.
* Note: A safety briefing will take place before commencing to inflate the balloon. Also upon landing your pilot will pop open a bottle of champagne and fruits and pastries will be prepared!
