Yangshuo Hot Air Ballooning

Currently the local government suspended the business of hot air ballooning in Yangshuo. Once it is open to the tourists, we will update the news immediately.

Hot Air Ballooning offers a overlook of Yangshuo's karst scenery, which is spectacular from the ground, but nothing compares to floating above it. You will be delighted by the hundreds of vertical sided hills, rivers, traditional villages and the patchwork of small farms.

Your adventure, with the security of our Chinese Australian ballooning company, includes return transfers from your hotel in luxury vehicles. Flights are approximately 60 minutes but may be cancelled, with a full refund, in the unlikely event of bad weather.

Your driver and guide will drive you to Hongqi Pier, from where the balloon embarks. There are two types of flights available and both can be booked from China Fact Tours.

Tethered flight

The hot air balloon is anchored to the ground by a rope and is let out slowly. You will float up gently and be able to watch the scenery transform as you ascend. This option is particularly favored for those who are scared of the thought of flying up too high. Generally these flights last about 15 minutes and reach approximately 100 meters.

Free flight

The hot air balloon flies for about 1 to 1.5 hours depending on the thermals. The pilots are all experts and have many years experience piloting the balloons around the region. Be ready to skim the tops of the mandarin orchards, meander through karst peaks and soar high above the landscape reaching heights of 1500 meters on this memorable balloon ride.

    Hi Barry, sorry to inform you that the ban may not be lifted in 2013. However, the low sky aviation rights will be granted in the next few years to companies like hot air balloon and small airplanes. And I am confident that companies with safety management will start this interesting activities.
