- About Ballooning in Rajasthan
The Ballooning Club of India organizes an International Hot Air Balloon Mela in
November every year which is an eagerly awaited event for balloonist the world over.
The undulating sand dunes are ideal for ballooning buffs. People can even travel
short distances between towns or historic resorts in these hot air balloons. The
