Hot air balloons are a man-made wonder – simply hop into these floating baskets, get a bird's eye view of the world and get amazed by nature's glory. Very few might know but India has many destinations that offer hot air balloon rides over some of the most stunning landscapes in the country. Here is a list of places from where you can board these balloons and soak in the views:

Hot air ballooning is one of the top things to try in Pushkar. The dessert city is well known for its annual mela and buzzing backpacker culture. Book yourself a hot air balloon ride and make your trip to Pushkar a memorable one. Witness vast spreads of golden sand dunes, hoards of camels from up above and watch the sun paint a picture unlike any other.
