Hot Air Balloon Over Inle,
Myanmar, Lake Inle
Info : Hot Air Balloon Over Inle
This extraordinary region of Myanmar (Burma) deserves to be explored from every angle, and what better way to take it all in than from a hot air balloon? Travel by boat across silvery Inle Lake and watch the morning mists rise off the water. Once you reach the balloon site, enjoy a leisurely breakfast of coffee, tea, and pastries before you take off. You’ll spend about an hour above the earth, your flight mastered by a licensed and experienced balloon pilot. See the incredible lake with its vibrant longboat traffic and busy Intha fishermen casting their nets. Take in the mountainous surroundings dotted with monasteries and traditional villages with stilted houses. If the conditions are right, you’ll go right over the vibrant floating markets, traverse the bird sanctuary or swoop over the Kaung Daing hot springs. Upon landing, you’ll be presented with a platter of seasonal fruit and some celebratory refreshments.
We enjoyed a 3 week trip exploring both the well known places as well as the less developed areas. We also balanced the trip with a variety of walks and activities as well as time for several half day breaks to relax. The Myanmar people are incredibly friendly and welcoming. The colours of the country are outstanding, wonderful dusty landscapes with rice fields and palm trees as well as so many amazing pagodas rich in colour and symbolism. Our best parts were the less well known places but Lake Inle and Bagan are must do places and are still not overrun by tourists. Experience Travel Group tailored a trip for our needs and knew how to do so and suggest appropriate hotels and means of travel.
