Hot Air Ballooning in Goa – Rise above in adventure

When we talk of being in the air or flying, our first thought goes to an aircraft flight or a helicopter ride. However we at Travel Adventures Goa bring to you, one unique experience up and above that will leave you spell bound. The beautiful village of Chandor plays host to an adventure trip called Hot Air Ballooning which is sure to get you overwhelmed in excitement.

What is Hot Air Ballooning?

It is a form of flying where you will take off at dawn to experience a spectacular 360 degree view of the earth and the beautiful sunrise. A large balloon is inflated with motorised fans, once filled with air; propane burners are ignited to heat the air inside the balloon. After about 30 minutes the balloon is ready to fly.

Soar into the air

At the beginning of the ride before inflation of the balloon, your pilot will give you all the necessary briefing about the flight. Once the balloon is set, it begins to go up in the air, guided by your pilot for the trip. You will be surprised as the balloon feels lighter than it looks. You will begin to get a breath taking sight at 360 degree angles all around you. Make sure you are carrying a camera to capture unforgettable images. The pilot manoeuvres the flight at various altitudes from high to low in order for you to get different types of views. There is plenty of room on the hot air balloon for all passengers to be comfortable. Get ready for excitement and cheers coming from all as this ride is guaranteed to give you an experience of a lifetime.

You will be followed throughout the journey by the ground crew who ensure that you have the perfect landing. Once the landing takes place, you will be taken back to the launch site in a vehicle.
