Hot air ballooning in Nepal is one of the adventure activity which can make you feel like a bird flying in the high sky. In Nepal, ballooning offers the beautiful view of sunrise, the Himalayan ranges and peaks, and the mesmerizing lake of Pokhara city. It is conducted in Pokhara only, the city of lakes and caves. Pokhara is 204.4 km away from Kathmandu and you can reach there in about 6 hours by road, or you can take a scenic flight of 30 minutes too. Then, you can transfer to Dhanpus or Lauruk, from where the balloon ride will take off.

Hot air ballooning was started a long time ago but it was stopped due to some reasons. But now it has again started with a bang offer of getting chance of flying 5 times a day i.e. balloon is permitted to fly for 5 times a day (but initially it will fly for two times: morning and afternoon). It will fly 500m above the Pokhara city providing the spectacular view of mountains like Annapurna range, the Fishtail (Machhapuchhre), Dhaulagiri, Hiunchuli, Lamjung Himal, lakes, forests, and as a whole valley. On a clear day, the observed scenario remains even more breathtaking. The landing of balloon takes place in the bank of Mardi River.

The best months for a hot air balloon flight are September, October, November, December, January, February, March, April, May which excludes the months of monsoon season (June, July, August). The flights take place daily during these months but also depend upon the wind and its direction of flow (eastward or westward across the valley). People recommend different mountain flights and aircraft motions, but hot air ballooning is much more promising one than others as you will be on the basket and can enjoy the nature swinging on the air.

Nepal Trek Adventure offers you the opportunity to enjoy this adventurous sport without letting you bother about the prices, time schedules, and training/orientation program. You can book this sport with us and put all the responsibility on our shoulder and just enjoy this bold journey. We will organize the whole trip for you including the hotel bookings, food and accommodation, and other facilities if you demand them. It will be easier for you to manage your time and schedule as you may be new to this natural land. You are heartily welcome to naturally Nepal where you can fly like a bird and overview its beauty with complete serenity.

  • Flying Adventure with Pokhara Balloon

    Flying Adventure with Pokhara Balloon


    In one word, Amazing! Never would I have imagined the ride to be so much fun.  The view of the Mountain ranges from the Pokhara balloon ride was a treat to the eyes. The Pokhara valley just beneath us looked so magical. The Phewa Lake, the green landscapes, the snow-capped mountains were just so satisfying to the eyes. I have done a helicopter ride to the surrounding mountain, Mount Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, and Machhapuchhre. I say this balloon ride is even better.  Looking at the red sun through the clouds from the basket was just like a dream. The cool breeze will make you more and more excited the higher up you go. Thank you, the Nepal Trek Adventures Team for the great arrangements. I had some trouble finding the company and after finding you guys, everything went smoother. I am very happy that you helped me with such short notice. I highly recommend the Nepal Trek Adventures for great customer service and fast response to any queries. Prescribed one!

  • Perfect Selfie in Hot Air Balloon Basket

    Perfect Selfie in Hot Air Balloon Basket


    I am addicted to social media. I take pictures of myself whenever I can and upload them to Instagram. But taking pictures isn’t easy, as you do activities like paragliding, rafting, and others as the body is constantly moving. The hot air balloon ride is different. You fly high in the sky and enjoy the beautiful view of the snow peaks and the valleys while staying inside the cozy balloon basket. Taking photos of the beautiful landscape was never a problem. The selfie I took with the stunning snow peak background came out great. I loved the hot air balloon ride with the NTA team. I strongly recommend this ride to all.

  • Heavenly Experience with Hot Air Ballooning in Pokhara

    Heavenly Experience with Hot Air Ballooning in Pokhara


    Every time I searched for a trek and tours available in Nepal, I would always find the saying “Heaven is Myth, Nepal is real”, a truthful one. I have to say, I couldn’t agree more to it. This was the best hot air ballooning ride in Nepal and foremost the most eligible trip that I found in Nepal. This wasn’t my first time trying out a hot air balloon but who would have known, I would fall in love with the one in Nepal. The sunrise view from the Hot Air Balloon is just mesmerizing. The mountain ranges just glowed making the eyesight cooler than ever. Looking at the sunray falling on the mountain made it seem like I was just looking at a Golden Mountain shining overhead. The Pokhara valley, surrounded by the lakes made the view even better. There is nothing closer to heaven than the view of the Pokhara environment from the top.  Nepal Trek Adventures team suggested the ride while I was in Pokhara, and I am glad I chose the ride with NTA for the booking. It was fast, easy and accomplished immediately at my request, maybe within some hours. I highly recommend the Hot Air Balloon ride and Nepal Trek Adventures Team for adventure in Nepal. Kudos!

    Best View of Mountains and Surrounding with Balloon Ride


    I was in Pokhara and was wondering what I could do more in this place except sightseeing. With so many activities like paragliding, boating, and more, it was difficult to choose. As I didn’t have much time, I had to choose something that mattered. So I contacted my travel agency, Nepal Trek Adventures. For all of you wondering what I picked, I did the hot air balloon flight in Pokhara. NTA booked the ride very quickly for me and that was the best day of mine in Pokhara, Nepal. The view of the mountains like Annapurna and Machhapuchhre was wonderful. Also, Phewa Lake and pristine surrounding valley's sight was incredible to see. It’s a perfect quiet activity with breathtaking views. Highly recommend this ride to everyone!

I can say that because of this Hot air ballooning experience you arranged for me. You made my vacation worth it. Those high mountains, low-lands, lakes, temples, floating boats, greenery were on top-notch. I got all these views from the basket. It was a thrilling practice but the amazing one. It was my dream to fly like a bird and view the environment from the top. Helicopter rides and airplane flights had not given me such happiness that this small basket experience gave. I cannot get through it for a long period of time. Highly recommended adventure activity in Nepal! And, of course, the best tours and trekking agency in town! Hats-off!

  • Unexpected Hot Air Ballooning Ride with her

    Unexpected Hot Air Ballooning Ride with her


    Flying high, higher and higher on the air might be somehow exciting for others, but for me, it's like death-on-neck. It is because I am really afraid of height. Last month, I had gone to Pokhara with my girlfriend. I did not know that she had arranged a hot air ballooning ride for us. We went on the spot and she told me then. I was like shattered with fear. I did not want to do this adventure, but my girlfriend wanted. So for her sake of happiness, I went on. Those 60 minutes of flight was like 60 hours of trepidation. The views of Pokhara valley, high mountains, blooming flowers, and rhododendron were marvelous, though. I was waiting for its landing. But when it was going to land, that falling motion brought my heart on hands. Finally, the ride was over. I did that, but because of my fear of height, I was not able to enjoy it fully. My girlfriend was so pleased that I went with her and got involved in her happiness. Thank you Nepal Trek for this balloon ride. You guys are the especial owner of her contentment. Thank you very much!

    Hot Air Ballooning Adventure after ABC Trek


    It was an astounding voyage in Nepal. I was genuinely delighted with the trekking in Nepal towards Annapurna Base Camp. After I complete the trek, I had some extra days left. So I believed in using that time in some creative stuff. The updates on the beginning of Hot air ballooning in Pokhara, the lake city of Nepal, was raising step by step. I was in Kathmandu, so I looked about it on the web for quite a while, and booked it from a similar organization with whom I went for trekking i.e. Nepal Trek Adventure & Expedition. They gave me a guide who demonstrated me the path to another goal, to the expanding site, Pokhara. We moved to Pokhara by street transportation. We reached Pokhara, settled there, ate and dozed. Promptly in the first part of the day, I woke up and moved to Pame from where I took off. I flew with other individuals sitting in the bushel. From the outset, I was terrified however later all went regularly and pretty well. I began getting a charge out of it. I saw numerous appealing highlights that got my eyes and psyche. It was an essential voyage for me, with the consecutive inflatable ride after a great trek. I express my humble gratitude toward NTA, for making it conceivable.
