Hot air balloon during certain season which we did not come across. Good scenery view at the parachute take off site. If you are doing neither of the activities then not much for you to do.

To me it is just a small patch of field for hot air ballooning, there is also Sledding available. Only worth coming during summer.

Stretches of land for hot air balloon and para-gliding.There are only one or two para-gliders during my visit and the space were left for our enjoyment. Truly, a place to expand our vision!

If you are looking for tea plantations, they are of a very small scale and not open to visitors, which was disappointing for us. Although there are teahouses where you can try... More
