Hot air ballooning in Nepal is one of the adventure activity which can make you feel like a bird flying in the high sky. Hot air balloon consists of a bag which contains heated air which helps the balloon to fly, and a wicker basket which carries passengers and source of heat. In the five years since the first tourist flight in Nepal, the sport has been very popular with tourists, which affords the most spectacular view of the Kathmandu Valley and the Himalayan ranges towering in the background. On a clear day, it is a superb way to view the Himalayas (from over 6000m up), and the view of the valley is equally breathtaking.

Even if you do not climb Mt. Everest, from the perfect safety and comfort of a wicker basket, you will feel that you have reached the top of the world in effortless security. The best months for a hot air balloon flight are October - November, and March, although the season extends from October to April. The flights take place daily during the season and are dependent on the wind for its direction (eastward or westward across the valley). The landing could be any place mostly in the terraced paddies that stretch out across the fringes of the valley, usually attracting a large impromptu gathering of villagers checking to see what has fallen out of the sky. From there, depending on which way the wind blows, it takes you on a trip that gives you a bird's eye view of Pokhara valley and Himalayan ranges around there.

Hot air ballooning was organized in some places in Nepal for sometimes but, it was stopped because of some reasons. But now, it is again running from the small village, Dhampus which lies 220 km west from capital city Kathmandu and 22 km far from the Pokhara, the city of caves and lakes. From here, there is an easy access to the whole valley and spectacular view of Annapurna range, the Fishtail, Dhaulagiri, Hiunchuli, Lanjung Himal.
