History and Background
Bagan has an unreal landscape with mystical pagodas which makes it one of the best hot air balloon ride destinations in the world. Bagan’s balloons have become an iconic symbol of the Myanmar, and have carried many travelers on soaring adventures of a lifetime. Ballooning season in Bagan runs from the beginning of October to the middle of April. Sunrise is when most rides are offered, as the cooler morning temperatures allow balloons to float closer to the ancient stupas for a more detailed glimpse. The surroundings turn into a dreamland when the first golden rays of the rising sun hit the land. Enjoy the awe-inspiring view of all the ancient temples of Bagan by flying over them in a hot air balloon. The spectacular Buddhist temples and amazing geography combined with excellent flying conditions allow the balloons to gently drift over sacred peaks, giant trees, agriculture fields and river at dawn.
