Hot Air Balloon Festival

Daytime

The most spectacular event of the year is the Hot Air Balloon Festival held every November in Taunggyi commonly called the Taunggyi Tazaungdaing Festival. Thousands of local pilgrims and international tourists choose to visit Taunggyi, especially to watch scores of giant paper animals being inflated and floated off into the sky.

At night

The competitions run during the day and at night when the sky is colorfully illuminated with hot air balloons. This Festival also included the celebration of the Tazaungdaing with Kahtein (offering of monk roves). Hot air balloons in the shape of elephant, ox, horse, water buffalo, bird pig, fish, owl and parrot are sent up into the sky.
