Hot Air Ballooning in Nepal in mid-October?


I have heard there is no ballooning in September. Does anyone know who I can contact to get a ride in Kathmandu or Bhaktapur middle of October? I have emailed some sites, but, of course, no response right now.

thanks ahead for taking time to respond!

There is no hot air ballooning in Kathmandu valley now - the service has been discontinued since some years back. That is probably why you received no replies from the websites.

If you want to experience airborne activities in Nepal, there are quite a lot of activities in Pokhara and Kathmandu. You could paraglide in Kathmandu (Contact Zen Nepal - …exoticbuddha.com/2009/… ) or Pokhara (exoticbuddha.com/2007/…); take a ultralight flight - exoticbuddha.com/2009/… - in Pokhara.
