Take the chance to fly above Vang Vieng, Laos in a world-class hot air balloon, operated under strict international standards. Your pilot is an internationally trained hot air balloon pilot with years of experience, so there’s nothing to fear. Hot air ballooning is notoriously expensive but in Vang Vieng it is considered to be one of the cheapest places in the world to experience the andrenaline of floating over 900 metres in the air in nothing but a basket attached to a massive balloon.
Thanks to Alex In Wanderland, we have some great pictures to show with you that she captured on her very own flight over Vang Vieng:
This is one of the only ways in which to truly experience and see the beauty of the limestone mountains & forestry that Laos is famous for.
There are several launch sites around Vang Vieng that you will begin your journey from. Once in the air, you’ll have the chance to float over the Nam Song River, the beautiful mountains and the town of Vang Vieng itself.
After 40 minutes in the air, you’ll make your way back towards ground-level, where a truck will be waiting to take you back into town for a meal or some rest.
Thanks to a very kind YouTube user, we have an excellent video to show you that will let you get a preview of what the hot air balloon ride over Vang Vieng involves. You can see the whole trip, from blowing up the balloon and launching over Vang Vieng, to the breathtaking views, ending in the smooth landing in the countryside.
Anyone can take part in this tour! Your pilot is an internationally trained hot air balloon pilot with years of experience, and all hot air balloons are flown under strict international standards.
