Experience the highlights of Myanmar in the most spectacular fashion on our unique Myanmar Hot Air Balloon Safari, the first trip of its kind in the country. The highlights of this trip are hot air balloon flights in 3 of the most iconic destinations in Myanmar; the ancient kingdom of Bagan, the cultural heart of the country Mandalay and the beautiful Inle Lake.
Your journey starts from British administration constructed capital city Yangon with visits to the shimmering gold and gems decorated Shwedagon pagoda and walk though the old quarter of Yangon where many beautiful old buildings remain.
Next we journey to Ancient Kingdom of Bagan, the greatest archeological treasure of Myanmar with over 2200 pagodas and temples ruins located on the plains Bagan by Ayeyarwaddy river (Irrawaddy). Bagan was during its heyday one the greatest kingdoms in the World and is truly a magical destination to visit. During the Bagan visit you will experience magical sunrise hot air balloon flight over the ancient city with its awe inspiring temples.
From Bagan continue to Mandalay, the religious and cultural heart of the country where we visit; sacred sites, palaces, bustling markets and shops and experience the city from a bird’s eye view on a morning hot air balloon flight.
From Mandalay we journey to rural Shan State and beautiful Inle Lake region inhabited by minority peoples. By Inle we visit markets, floating gardens and cultural highlights on the lake. The balloon flight here is spectacular. You will glide over the villages built on stilts on the lake and between mountain ranges rising on the sides of the lake valley.
