Bagan Balloon Experience
Serenely float over Bagan’s remarkable temples in a hot air balloon at sunrise and appreciate the sheer scale of these archaeological wonders while watching the Irrawaddy River flow far below.
Only a hot air balloon allows an uninterrupted perspective of Bagan’s iconic temples and pagodas. And, at sunrise it is even more magical. After a short transfer in the pre-dawn hours, the crew will inflate the balloon and the pilot will give a safety briefing and introduction. Then it is up, up and away. Slowly the balloon rises just as the temples start to shine with the sun’s early morning rays and the river becomes silvery and illuminated. As you float above the countless ancient temples, usually for around 45 minutes to one hour depending on the wind conditions, the pilot is on-hand to point out the famous sites. It is a fabulous way to see Bagan in all its glory and to appreciate the sheer scale of the temple complexes. Back on the ground, breakfast awaits you.
