Oriental Ballooning


Experience the Golden Land from above with Oriental Ballooning.
Rising into the sky with the morning sun, Myanmar unfolds before you. Drifting with gentle winds and flying low over villages, there is a bird’s eye view of local life to take in. Then, climbing higher, the breath-taking views of the regional landscape extends ahead. Experienced and knowledgeable pilots open up a new horizon of tales and discoveries for you to enjoy. Sun-rises over the golden land, a land that as Rudyard Kipling put it is “...quiet unlike any other land you know.” And you get the chance to experience Myanmar in a way no other mode of transportation can offer.

Oriental Ballooning is presently offering breathtaking hot-air excursions over historic Mandalay. Capacity is 40 passengers in 6 different hot-air balloons. With 2 balloons that can accommodate 4 passengers each and another 4 balloons that can each hold 8 passengers, Oriental Ballooning can service a variety of different sized groups. With future plan to expand to other locations, such as Inle Lake, privately chartered sun-rise flights are currently available daily and are complimented by premium service. Flight last between 45 minutes to 1 hour depending on weather conditions.
