Float silently over the plains of Bagan, taking in the sights of a thousand temples and the meandering Ayeyarwady River as the sun rises at dawn. Destination Asia Myanmar have partnered with Golden Eagle Ballooning to offer spectacular morning flights in Bagan. Their balloons are manufactured by Ultramagic from Spain; one of the world’s leading balloon manufacturers with approval by European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA).
Golden Eagle Ballooning currently operates with three Swiss pilots and one Spanish chief pilot. Guests are collected from their hotel at approximately 5:30 am before the break of dawn and taken to meet their pilot as the balloon is set up with a light breakfast served. Following a safety briefing the balloons are filled with hot air and stand ready for take-off. After entering into the secure baskets the flight commences and before they know it, guests are drifting along with the gentle breeze, floating over the spellbinding landscape of an ancient city.
