The best way to appreciate the scale of this temple site is to see it from the air. We can arrange a spectacular hot air balloon ride, taken at sunrise and including a light breakfast and a glass of sparkling wine. The flights, which drift serenely over the temples allowing perfect photo opportunities, generally last about 45 minutes.

The balloons are built to the highest standards of the British aerospace industry by Cameron Balloons Ltd, the world’s largest manufacturer of hot air balloons and the pilots and technicians are qualified and registered in the UK. Flights only operate under appropriate weather conditions, generally between October and March. Although relatively expensive this balloon flight is worth every penny, a true once in a lifetime experience.

Flights in the afternoon are sometimes available on request….but are more prone to cancellations due to weather conditions.

For an extra touch, there is a VIP option available, which is restricted to only 8 people per day. On arrival you will be escorted to an adjacent launch site and your pilot will give you an up-close tour of the balloon as it is being prepared for inflation. Its all a bit more personal and a DVD, specific to your flight, is given as a momento a the end.
