    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!

    I have been to Lonavala many times, but the hot air balloon experience is the best of all. We were made to feel extremely safe, and the views up there is mindblowing!

     Rated : 4.0

    I have been in many hot air balloon abroad before, but they were mostly in open fields and grass lands, this one being on a hill station was a different experience, The landscape was beautiful to watch from birds eye view, and the air was amazing and fresh gives chills and obviously looking at those lovely valleys was mind blowing, Also the view of the express highway was perfect from there, add up stuff for my journal and Facebook news feeds. Since there are not many places to see the trip was pretty short, wish it lasted longer but for safety issues they didn’t permit. Over all it was amazing.
