Turkey is passe Welcome the hot air balloons at Meghalaya

There was a time when if anybody wanted to experience the true joy of hot air balloon ride, they’ll have to visit Cappadocia, Turkey for the breathtaking views. With their hot air balloon rides, The Meghalayan Age festival brings these mesmerising experiences to your home country.

At the festival, a morning flight takes you sky high to soak in the pristine vistas for an hour. And in the evening, the balloons are tethered, where you can enjoy mingling with the local tribal communities. While the hot air balloons loom above with a subtle colourful glow, on ground you can shop for heirlooms from the rural bazaar and savour traditional food, and make merry as the evening gains momentum.
