One of the adventurous activities, gaining a lot of popularity these days is Hot Air Ballooning or Balloon Safari. There is a wicker basket at one end where the pilot rides. The wicker basket is attached to a huge balloon, made up of sturdy, rip-stop nylon. There is a burner between the balloon and the wicker basket which is used to heat the balloon air that propels it upwards in the air. Depending on the degree to which the air in the balloon is heated, the balloon rises up. When the pilot wants to come down, he has to allow the air to cool. Thus, it needs a lot of maneuvering. Balloon safari is the best way to enjoy the magnificent sights all around and enjoy the bird’s eye view of the area. It is thrilling to explore the entire area from arially and enjoy the natural landscape. Hot Air ballooning is enjoyed in open spaces and it is imperative to have an experienced person along when enjoying the activity for the first time!
