This recreational activity is favored by the tourists. One cannot have a better sight of Jammu and Kashmir, than on visualizing it from a hot air balloon. Winter time is perfect to enjoy this expedition. Hot air ballooning is based on a very rudimentary theory, that, warm air rises upwards. It is the propane gas, that engulfs the open balloon and makes it rise above the ground. The vibrant balloon is made basically of nylon and is very tough. When the hot air form the valve on the top of the parachute is opened, it allows the hot air to escape. Thus, the balloon sinks and comes to the ground. It is thoroughly dependent on the flow of the wind, so pilots generally co ordinate with the weather department before conducting this aero sport. Two to ten people can be carried at once, though it also depends upon the size of the balloon. These balloons can travel up to a height of 3,000 feet in the altitude.
