First Tibetans take to the sky!

On Sunday 14th August Tenzin Phuntsok and Wangdue Tsering, who both live in Bristol UK, became the first Tibetans to fly in the Tibet hot air balloon.

Tenzin and Wangdue joined us on the launch field for an early morning start, helping to set up the balloon before going inside to meet mini Tashi who had been brought over from France especially for the occasion.

Launching with over 100 balloons from the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta, Tenzin and Wangdue waved to the crowd as they floated gently over the countryside with the Clifton Suspension Bridge, a famous British landmark and symbol of the city of Bristol, in the background.
