Pushkar (28th October - 04th November 2017)
Pushkar is the only destination of its kind to host a Hot Air Balloon Festival. What makes it unique is the cultural, historical & mythological legacy that gets intertwined with the age old practice of cattle trading. This vibrant melee of colour, buzz, music, dust, stamping hooves, camel grunts, temple bells does leave many in a state of wide-eyed bewilderment.
It is indeed an astonishing site to view all this and more from high above on board on a Hot Air Balloon.
Sky Waltz Balloon safari organises the Pushkar International Balloon Festival. Guests can book hot air balloon rides or simply watch the over dozen International teams do mass ascents or view the Hound & Hare Balloon Races.
