Marvel at the magnificent views as your balloon slowly floats up into the sky. As the sun starts to rise on the horizon, notice the purple and pinks that illuminate the sky, setting a stunning backdrop to the environment.

Admire the unique geologic forces, like wind, floodwater, and volcanic activity, that have formed this beautiful region over millennia. After one hour, slowly descend back to earth, as the formations you saw from above begin to appear closer. Hold tight for a smooth landing, then celebrate your return to earth with a souvenir certificate to remember this occasion. At the end of your tour, you will be transferred back to your hotel.
