The festival lasts for a week where every day dozens balloons in various kinds and shapes fly over the snowy mountains. The last day is the climax of the festival when the balloons fly at night.
Due to the numerous visitors during the festival days and the high demand for tickets and accommodations it is recommended to check hotel rates and book rooms well in advance.
