Balloons Over Bagan

Imagine floating over thousands year old pagodas and the mighty Ayeyarwaddy River, as the sun sinks slowly behind distant mountains. Balloons over Bagan affords visitors a unique opportunity to see this ancient kingdom, as it ever has been before. The sunrise and sunset champagne flights last just under one hour and take off daily from October through to the end of March. The balloons are guided by gentle winds not exceeding 15mph, allowing passengers a serene and peaceful bird’s-eye-view of ancient temples drifting by. Using his skills, the pilot is able to guide the balloon to a gentle landing on the banks of the Ayeyarwaddy River, or in an open field, where the crew and the celebratory glass of champagne will be on hand.

The balloons are provided by Cameron Balloons Limited of the United Kingdom, the world’s largest manufacturer of hot air balloons, and the manufactures of the Breitling Orbiter. Commercial Passenger Ballooning enjoys the highest safety record of all forms of air transport. However, in line with the most established UK balloon operations, Balloons over Bagan carries third party and passenger liability insurance of USD 2 million, reinsured through Lloyds of London.
