Balloons Over Inle
Early 2015 saw our balloon operations launch into exciting new territory
Balloons over Bagan will operate our daily service to Inle Lake carrying up to 6 or 8 passengers over the floating gardens and villages on the lake. To fly over the lake in a balloon, has to be one of the most beautiful ways to experience one of Myanmar’s most scenic and cultural attractions. Local Inthar fishermen looking for the first catch of the day, and boats laden full of produce on their way to the market through a maze of green floating canals. The daily service will allow for private charters over Pindaya as well as the ability to roll out our safari concept to meet demand throughout the 2015/2016 high season.
Your journey commences with an early morning flight over Inle Lake, home to the Inthar people. Our pilots carefully use their knowledge of the winds to steer the balloon over the floating villages and water gardens. Breakfast is taken either on our special retrieve boat in the middle of the lake or next to one of the beautiful Shan villages wherever we land.
