Private Balloon Safaris over Inle and Pindaya
An incredible 2-day adventure through Southern Shan State seen from a hot air balloon Shan state is one of Myanmar’s most beautiful and culturally diverse areas. Our exclusive balloon safari takes you to the most stunning sites of Inle Lake and Pindaya in a style and manner reminiscent of the great days of luxury travel. Site seeing by balloon is a truly remarkable experience, allowing you to venture off the beaten path and gain a unique perspective of the country and its people.
Shan State’s famed Inle Lake is home to the Intha people, who live on and around the lake. To fly over the lake in a balloon, has to be one of the most beautiful ways to see this wonder. Our skilled pilots carefully use their knowledge of the winds to steer the balloon over the floating villages and water gardens. You will see the morning fishermen looking for the first catch of the day, and boats laden full of produce on their way to the market by the immense labyrinth of canals. At higher altitude you will be amazed to see thousands of village houses seemingly floating on the lake.
Reminiscent of the rolling hills of Tuscany, Pindaya is set against some of the highest Shan Mountains and is a delight to see from the air. We will fly along the mountain valley, passing tiny Shan hamlets and hill top pagodas occasionally swooping down to the delight of villagers who have never seen a hot air balloon before. We fly at a time when the fields are awash with colour, with swathes of green and yellow against brilliant blue skies.
