Day 1

Overview

Sunset Hot Air Balloon

We fly in the Nathong valley, a 10-minute drive from Vang Vieng downtown. We think it's the best place to fly and to get a chance to enjoy the peaceful Lao countryside, far enough from the hustle and bustle of VV! The beauty of ballooning is that you're stepping out of the beaten track and getting to see places you couldn't normally access. What better way to discover Laos?

Every flight is an adventure since a hot air balloon cannot be steered. All we can control is the altitude, and play with the different wind layers. This means we have a rough idea of where we will land, but can't be sure. Some days we manage to fly back to the takeoff field (it's called a box in balloonist lingo), sometimes we land next to one of the villages, or in a rice paddy. Sometimes we cover a bit of distance, sometimes there's very little wind which allows us to fly quite high and admire the view as far as the Nam Gnum lake... Not two flights are the same!
