Preparing to take off
You will need to come on site at around 5 a.m. in the morning in order to catch the sunrise experience of the hot air balloon ride. Giving you another highlight of this experience. The hot air balloon inflating process is adrenaline rushing. Imagine more than one hundred of hot air balloon are being inflated simultaneously and the atmosphere with all these eagerly waiting passengers are just viscerally motivating! You can’t wait to get to fly with it!
You can also view the video below showcasing the exciting hot air balloon inflation moment!
Flying in the sky
The raising up experience is indeed palpable, and you are incapable of regulating your heartbeat at normal rate. Everyone is as excited as a new born child experiencing a new encounter. If you pay close attention to the photo, you will notice some hot air balloon look significantly brighter than the others. This is because the pilot is firing up the balloon intermittently to maintain the temperature of the hot air contained within the balloon or the pilot wants it to fly higher with hotter air!
To enhance your imagination capability, you may view the video below illustrating the breathtaking scenery filled with more than one hundred balloons flying simultaneously. Simply amazing!
An interesting point of this flying experience is the balloon is actually flowing in the direction of the wind. The pilot doesn’t have a steering equipment to maneuver the balloon movement direction. Hence, you might be surprised of what will comes to you spontaneously.
The landing experience
Upon flying for about an hour in the sky with splendid observation pleasure, it’s time to land. It’s a kind of experience to land because you will need to embrace a landing position as per the pilot’s instruction to minimize the landing impact. Also, as a safety measure to all.
If you pay closer attention, there is a car welcoming the landing balloon because that car will be the equipment to keep the deflated and subsequently folded balloon. Each car will only be responsible for one balloon due to its passenger carrier size constraint.
Here comes that last video showing you the landing scene with all these balloons started/already touching the ground upon successful landing.
In view of the successful landing, we are celebrating this unforgettable journey with champagne to close the chapter wonderfully!
