The second edition of the 'Araku Balloon Festival’, in Andhra Pradesh organized by the Andhra Pradesh Tourism, will take place from 18th to 20th January 2019 in the picturesque Araku Valley.

Last year, the festival had hot air balloons flying all over the Araku Valley, enhancing the scenic beauty of the place. The line-up comprised of 16 balloons from different participant countries including India, France, Italy, Australia, Belgium, Switzerland, and so on.

There were “special shaped” balloons featuring iconic characters like 'Iwi the Kiwi,' 'Neptuno' and 'Bee', which added elements of fun and play to the festival.
