Hot air balloon to flight in W Nepal

Tara Air is starting commercial hot air balloon flights with two balloons from the first week of April, 2010 targeting Nepal Tourism Year-2011.

According to Saturday's report, the hot air balloon can carry six people at a time and will launch from Lake Side of Pokhara, the famous tourism city in western Nepal.

Mt. Annapurna, Dhaulagiri and Lamjung ranges can be seen, and the flight will begin early in the morning, said Tara Air.

Tara Air has already launched "The Balloon Fiesta" in Pokhara, some 200 km west of Kathmandu, from March 23, 2010 and has delegated five days for trial runs.

26 pilots along with crew members from Austria will be flying the six balloons of different sizes.

It is sports adventure, one of the added attractions for the tourists for scenic views, said the organizer.
