Hot air balloon ride is an attractive adventure at Pushkar. The balloon ride is available only during the mela times, Pushkar mela. It is usually in the mornings, the someone told me the cost of ride is Rs.16,000/- per person, I am not very sure. For sure it is not within the reach of common people in India, the average domestic tourist. The ride is for an hour in the air. Preparation time is more. Once in air, the flier can have view of Pushkar town with its lake, temples, surrounding sand dunes and people and animals down in the town.
When I reached the mela grounds where the ride starts, there was huge gathering and I could take pictures only from a distance.
