Do you want to discover Rajasthan from a whole different angle? In a hot air balloon you get a very unique perspective on the area. You can embark in Jaipur, where you drift right over the Amber Fort and have a fantastic view of the historic forts and palaces in the Aravalli Hills. Or take off in Ranthambore and fly over the exotic landscape and the pristine woods that are home to one of India’s largest tiger populations. Or discover Pushkar from above, whether on not during the Pushkar Camel Mela, and watch the holy lake, the sand dunes and flower gardens in the area. As the wind decides where it takes you, every balloon ride is different. Most balloon safari’s leave around sunrise or two hours before sunset, because that’s when the wind is usually most stabile.
