Enchanting World Of Hot Air Ballooning In Pinjore

The gentle rustling of leaves in the breeze, the distant call of a bird, and the anticipation of an adventure in the air – this is the essence of hot air ballooning in Pinjore. Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar will introduce a Hot Air Balloon Safari in the town to promote Pinjore as a tourist attraction. Not only will the recreation centre provide tourists with more tourism options beyond what is already available, but it will also expose them to Pinjore’s historical past.

According to a statement given to Hindustan Times, adventure activities including paragliding, jet skiing, parasailing, and trekking have already been introduced in the Tikkar Tal area of Morni Hills. Alongside water sports, trekking, mountain bike trails, and other activities have received recognition in an effort to increase tourism in Haryana and improve ecotourism in Morni Hills. The forest department has also encouraged ecotourism in the Morni Hills by arranging events like camping, off-roading, and trips to herbal gardens.

In addition, plans have been developed to develop the region between Kalka and Kalesar as a tourist destination, with an estimated cost of ₹1,200 crore. The Aravalli mountain range’s Dhosi Hills are being developed as a pilgrimage destination as well since famous sages like Chyavana Rishi lived there and gave the place spiritual value. Additionally, research is being done to support air sports like paragliding.

Nestled in the lap of the Shivalik Hills, Pinjore offers a unique and exhilarating way to explore its beauty and soak in the tranquillity of nature.
