There is no better sight than the view of a rising sun against a clear desert sky. This is even better experienced at a height, against the spectacular backdrop of the majestic Hajjar mountains, as you are sailing high above the desert while the wind is gently rocking your basket and carrying you slowly along to witness the plethora of activity happening below you. Witness the mesmerizing landscape of Dubai, with the larger than life sand dunes continuously changing form with the winds that beat against it. Spot the various indigenous flora and fauna of Dubai, like the hump-backed camels, slight footed gazelles and the rare oryx. The cool serene morning air adds to the pleasure of the experience as you witness the changing colors of the desert as the morning sun climbs steadily up the sky. The bird’s eye view that this ride offers, as well as the panoramic experience of a hot air balloon, is unparalleled. And upon finishing this wonderful activity, you may even meet some indigenous farmers and falconers, with whom you may click photographs as a souvenir of this remarkable experience!
