FAQs

The flying season in Myanmar is October to March. We are currently offering early morning flights throughout this period.

From picking up at your hotel, taking the flight, celebrating champagne and returning your hotel, the entire journey takes approximately 3 to 4 hours.

Passenger pick-up time varies by location and throughout the flying season but is generally between 5.30am and 6.15am. We will inform you of the exact time when you confirm your flight, which is usually the evening prior to your flight.

To take advantage of the best flying conditions and to capture that all-important early morning light as it illuminates the temples and stupas. Later in the day the atmosphere may become unstable making it unsuitable for ballooning.

We currently offer flights over Bagan.

Hot air balloons fly with the wind so the distance travelled depends on the wind speed. Typically you will travel between 5 and 10km. Your pilot will alter the height the balloon travels at throughout the flight to give you the best views. At times you will glide along at tree-top height and at others you will be given a panoramic view from 2000 ft/600m.

You needn’t be. In our experience, people who say they are afraid of heights invariably find that in a balloon basket their fears melt away immediately the balloon leaves the ground. There is a scientific explanation why this is so, but we won’t bore you with it here. 

Balloon baskets, like balloons come in different sizes. STT  Ballooning is proud to offer you compartment baskets for your safety and comfort. There will be eight pax for Platinum flight and sixteen in Classic Flight .

We do not offer afternoon flights. Morning flights are cooler and more likely to occur, as the weather conditions are more reliable and suitable in the morning.

Passengers aged 8 or older can be flown, as long as they are at least 137cm tall (4ft6in). Children under the age of 16 must be accompanied on the flight by a responsible adult. 

You need to be able to climb in and out of the basket and stand unaided for an hour or so.

You should wear layered, comfortable outdoor clothing and sturdy flat shoes. Although it gets hot quickly when the sun rises, it can be quite cold and damp before sunrise, especially during December and January. It is best to wear layers of clothes, which you can take off as the morning warms up.

There’s toilet facilities available on our launch sites.

Handbags, cameras, binoculars and lots of questions; just as you would when out with a tour guide. You will want to capture those memories and our knowledgeable pilots will be happy to answer all of your questions. Valuables are carried in the basket at the owner’s risk.

Flights can be cancelled for due to weather or operational reasons. Although the weather in Myanmar during the flying season is very stable, there are occasions when we have to cancel a flight for the safety of our passengers, pilots and crew. If this happens, we suggest, you book your balloon flight for your first available morning in STT Ballooning so that you wont miss out. If you are leaving and will not be able to reschedule, you will get full refund from us.
