One of the adventure tourism activity in Nepal is a hot air ballooning which feels like flying a bird in the sky with an eye-catching view. The hot air ballooning provides the scenic mountain view of the Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, Manaslu, and Ganesh Himal massifs including the beautiful lakes of the Pokhara city, valley, rivers, hills, and terraces. This hot air ballooning flight service is running only in Pokhara which is about 200km west from the capital city Kathmandu. To go to Pokhara, there are the tourist buses services which take 6-7 hours driving through the hillside driving or a scenic mountain flight which takes about half an hour then transfer to the place from where the ballooning flights take off.
The hot air ballooning is a new adventure experience in Nepal which has been launched in November 2018. The hot air ballooning flights are operating twice a day in the morning and noon except the rainy season. These flights are flying by the expert pilots.
