There's a whole new thrill to soaring through the skies in a giant air balloon. You'll be surprised at how peaceful and calming it is, with the burners gurgling softly overhead, and birds flying away rapidly. From the minute you clamber into the spacious basket below, and settle into your own private compartments, you'll feel the excitement mounting. The balloon begins to rise and tug at the basket as it fills, and in no time, the ground drops away from under you. It's the flight of your life! And it happens right here, in Mumbai/Pune's own adventure playground, Lonavala.
Your actual flight time is usually 45-60 minutes, but do plan for about 3 hours for the entire adventure. This allows time for your briefing, to help inflate the balloon (if you want), and to enjoy your hot air ballooning flight in Lonavala.
