Go spellbound from the sky at Pushkar International Balloon Festival


Pushkar Mela of Rajasthan is one of the most well-known fairs in India that is not only popular amongst its citizens but foreign nationals likewise. The fair also serves as a major tourist attraction for the state of Rajasthan. The desert affair that was started around a century ago now attracts over 800,000 tourists, 80,000 camels & cattle and more than 60,000 expatriates from various parts of the world. The fair is a place where we see exuberance of vibrant camel races, dances and folk festivals, food fairs, spiritual sprees and craft bazaars converging in one place.

From an experiential point of view, nothing could be better than experiencing the majestic and vibrant event from both land and air - Pushkar International Balloon Festival lets you do just that.

The 3-day festival extravaganza in the city of Pushkar during the mega mela offers world-class hot air ballooning experience, which is inspired from similar international balloon festivals that are popular around the globe. The festival is an experiential haven that gives bird’s eye perspective of the Pushkar fair to people.

Although the main attraction of the festival is hot air ballooning, the event will have immersive folk dance performances, bonfire barbecue, picnic breakfast at the dunes, and dune bashing in four wheelers and ATVs, among many other activities. The guests will experience the exotic Kalbelia and Bali dances and will be taken to Brahma temple for a visit. After the sundown on day 1 and day 3, during the festival will witness Night Glow Music Concert, a visual and aural delight. The lively Night Glow Music Concert will showcase the spectacular sight and sound of the balloons lighting up the dark night sky along with musical concert. The performers at the festival are locally and nationally recognized for their talent.

The comfort of the guests is completely taken care of with luxurious camps and amenities, so they can experience the vibrant festival in full brilliance.

The festival successfully amalgamates culture, heritage, vibrancy, adventure and lifestyle - all packaged in an experience in the heart of the Thar Desert, and then the adventurous balloon ride, icing on the cake. The festival invites more than a dozen hot air balloons from Europe, America and Asia who litter the sky in bright and vibrant colours.

The organizing company behind this lavish extravaganza is Skywaltz that started hot air ballooning from its headquarter in New Delhi & NCR. The brand has been recognized and approved by the DGCA (Directorate General of Civil Aviation) to ensure all safety parameters are met. Skywaltz operates a fleet of six balloons and equipment procured from Cameron UK & Ultra Magic from Spain, to ensure top notch handling and safety.
