Jaipur Airport is about 2.5 hrs by road from Ranthambore, and Sawai Madhopur railway station is about 10 kms away. Local taxis and trains are available from Jaipur and from Sawai Madhopur.
Take this hot air balloon ride over Ranthambore to really experience the expanse of untamed landscape, almost as majestic as it's celebrity resident, the Bengal tiger. This trip starts from the outside of the National Park, and takes you over the forests. While the forest is known to have the largest population of Bengal Tigers, it is also home to leopards, deer, jungle cats, flying foxes, and crocodiles. Keep your eyes peeled for a glimpse of any of these, and your day will be made.
Note: Your actual flight time is usually 45-60 minutes, and you'll rise to a height of about 2000-4000 feet, depending on the weather. Do plan for about 4-5 hours for the entire adventure.
IMPORTANT: The hot air balloon sessions are available only in the early morning and late afternoon, when the skies are changing colour, and when the wind and temperatures are at their best.
Ranthambore is a world famous wildlife National Park located about 120 kms from Jaipur. It lies in the middle of the Aravalli hills, so you when you fly, you can expect stunning views. You'll see the water bodies in the park, the rolling hills around, and the scrubland blending with the jungle. 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!
