Tashi visits the Austrian Alps

posted in: Austria, Balloon, Events | 0

Following our very successful trip to Switzerland the Tibet Balloon Team moved onwards to Austria.

We were delighted to be invited to the International Libro Balloon Cup held in Kirchberg in Tirol with our friends from Save Tibet and the Tibetan Community in Austria The opening afternoon of the meeting was dedicated to children and Tashi was the only balloon to be inflated in-front of the crowds, creating a great opportunity to talk about the balloon and the Tibetan situation.

Tashi took to the sky everyday including a spectacular flight to 10,000ft above the Alps to watch the sunrise and of course took a starring role in the ‘Night of Balloons’.

If you have ever wondered what its like to fly in a balloon and to fly so high below is the video footage from our flight to watch the sunrise over the Alps
