Taj Balloon Festival - Agra Like You've Never Seen Before

The Taj Balloon Festival is a unique 3-day extravaganza that recreates the pageantry and elegance of the Mughal era, whilst setting new benchmarks in the realm of lifestyle tourism.

Romancing the skies over Taj - a spectacle in white marble, unparalleled in its grandeur, a testament to love - this one of its kind festival offers a novel opportunity to experience the Taj Mahal like never before.

The Taj Balloon Festival has been tastefully pre-packaged to offer a glimpse of the rich culture and heritage of Agra, spiced with adventure and unique insider experiences – all set against the awe inspiring backdrop of the Taj.

Excursions include visit to monuments as well as the renowned Kalakriti Cultural & Convention Centre, along with royal dining experiences in this regal city of Agra.


Taj - Skyview

The Taj reveals its hidden subtleties only when viewed from the unique vantage point offered by a hot air balloon ride. An architectural masterpiece that has a life of its own, leaping through the marble, reflecting in the surrounding waters, reaching unto the skies.


Agra is a city steeped in history. Long renowned as the city of the Taj Mahal – it is unrivaled in its splendor throughout the world. Replete with spectacular historical reminders of the Mughal era, it has magnificent palaces, forts and mausoleums all over the city – each with its own story to tell.


In the evenings, the lively night glow concert will showcase the spectacular sight and sound of the balloons lighting up the dark night sky along with a musical accompaniment. The evenings are capped off with performances and entertainment from local and nationally recognized music and dance performers.

This effort is a part of our initiative to develop new attractions and events at Agra. Agra, the Taj City with its Heritage monument like Taj Mahal, Agra fort and Fatehpur Sikri is distinct and form a very important region in the Heritage Arc. Last year we did ‘Meragra’ campaign involving youth and stakeholder to promote responsible tourism in the state.

The Uttar Pradesh Government is holding the Festival in association with E-factor Adventure Tourism Pvt. Ltd. is a prominent company in India that operates commercial hot air ballooning flights along-with promoting and hosting various Hot Air Ballooning related events.


A treat for adventure enthusiasts set against the mesmerizing backdrop of the TAJ, eligible across three sets of dates.
