    For the fun and thrill you can have on this flight, the cost is not too much. The ballooning crew were extremely friendly and assured us the maximum safety measurements. Really loved the whole experience of flying over the beautiful locales of our very own Lonavala.

    The ride was a risky one but it is worth every penny, the safety measures were well taken care of first from the start. A guide will show u vantage points from top, also will operate the balloon. Also it gives a topographic view of not just the lonavala city but of others places nearby too. It’s also a wonderful feelings to see the greeneries around us, makes us feel proud of this nation and its sites. It’s pretty cold up above so it’s better if we carry some woollen stuff. It’s almost like you are in a plane which is about to land or just took off.

    We went up steadily and also the flight was the same. Though it was steady, it was an experience of its own kind. The views from high above the ground, the cool breezes, the thrill we had and the way the entire flight was arranged was simply awesome!
