Float high up in the clouds, with the cool wind caressing your face in a hot air balloon safari in Bengaluru.
What Is It?
There is nothing more exciting than flying in the Bengaluru skies with the golden glow of the sun, warming your face. The Hot Air Balloon Safari in Bengaluru is an experience that’s straight out of an Enid Blyton book. Make all your childhood dreams come true as you sit in a colourful balloon and watch the world go by under you. You even get to watch how the balloon is filled. It’s a concept much like the Chinese Lantern. Only this time, you get to actually sit in it. The perfect way to unwind during the weekends, head to Jakkur Airfield which is only 30 minutes from Bengaluru to live your childhood dreams.
Tell Me More
Along with hot air balloon safaris, you can indulge in parasailing, airplane joyrides and many more at Jakkur Airfield. With plenty of flying hot air balloons in the sky, your social media feeds will become extremely popular among your friends. But that doesn’t mean you don’t have to follow rules. A hot air balloon can only fly up with the speed of the wind so generally there will be strict precautions to be taken if you’re a first-timer. An instructor will be guiding you initially and you will be given lessons before your ride.
The Hot Air Balloon Safari is an adventure in the air – quite literally! You know your take-off point but you don’t know where you’ll be landing. The hot air balloon just goes with the wind (in a controlled environment of course). Each ride is a new experience. No two enthusiasts will ever get the same view. Don’t forget to carry your camera, sun-screen and sunglasses as you embark on this voyage through the clouds.
