Pushkar Hot Air Balloon Festival

Pushkar Hot Air Balloon Festival - The best time to indulge in ballooning is after sunrise when the winds are at the calmest.

The best time to go for ballooning in Pushkar is at the time of Pushkar Fair when the climate in Rajasthan is at its best offering. The half-hour ride in the sky of Pushkar is sure to send your adrenaline rushing while not being scary at all.

Winter months provide the most reliable conditions, but during summer it is better if the ride is taken early morning. The duration of ballooning flight can change at the pilots discretion, taking into account the winds, temperature and weight carried on the day.

How to get there

By train: From Delhi to Ajmer by train and to Pushkar by road transport

By road: RSRTC buses run regularly from Delhi to Rajasthan.

Nearest Town: Ajmer

Exact Location: 11 km north west of Ajmer

Distance: Delhi “ Ajmer “ 389 km. Ajmer “ Pushkar : 11 km

Advisory

Physical fitness is of importance considering the walk through the paddocks during the hot air ballooning. The half hour ride is on foot, as there is no seating inside the gondola so it is advisable not to take children along.

Clothing should include sturdy shoes or boots plus sunglasses, gloves and a cap. Dont forget to bring an extra film for photography. When alone a balloon can rise upto 800 feet and above, while those in groups may be restricted to heights between 200 and 500 feet.

Other Information

The Pushkar fair takes place every year usually in November, depending on the cycle of the moon. In 2009, the official dates for the Pushkar Camel Fair are October 30 to November 2. Camel trading and other activities takes place over the 5 days leading up to the official start of the festival, after which time the focus shifts to heightened religious celebrations.

Located outside of Pushkar city, surrounded by hills and lush green surroundings. A very friendly warm welcome with smiles on every staff's face which has taken away our traveling tiredness. Though there was a corporate party going on I was still given attention. Best rooms with relaxing spa treatments which was arranged on special appointment for the later same evening as requested. I had a special Rajasthani cuisine/dish ordered for dinner without prior notice and it was happily provided as requested and was delicious. Staff is very caring pleasant and friendly. Grounds are huge so can easily walk around a lot. I would like to thank Thrillophilia for instant booking confirmations of best stay deals.
