Hot Air Balloon over Pindaya , Pindaya Myanmar, Lake Inle
In the Shan state of Myanmar (Burma) lies Pindaya, a lovely lakeside town known for its beauty and diversity in the landscape. Your experienced balloon pilot will steer the balloon to suit the weather conditions and to get the best possible views. The ascent is a highlight: you’ll rise up past the impressive natural Shwe Oo Min Cave with its thousands of golden Buddha statues nestled inside. Once you reach altitude, marvel at the Shan hills and settlements, see the tea, fruit and vegetable plantations and spot the tribal people wearing colourful garb. If your flight takes you to lower altitudes, you can greet the village children and spot the vendors selling their handicrafts at the colourful local markets. Once your hour above the earth comes to an end, enjoy some refreshments and fresh fruit on land.

Why not give us a call
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.
