Cappadocia, one of Turkey’s visually striking regions, is one of the most unique spots in the world. It is a landscape that you will never witness elsewhere in your lifetime, making it one of the best and most popular spots for riding a hot air balloon.
Although you have to wake up at 4 am because they take off before sunrise, but trust me, it’s totally worth sacrificing your precious sleep. Upon taking off, it offers a breathtaking view of the lush valleys and deep canyons, with sunrise making it look even more beautiful and surreal. The balloon slowly drifts over the fairy chimneys, through the pigeon valleys and above the orchards and vineyard so mesmerizing, you’ll be left in awe.
I’d say as long as you’re following the flight rules, even someone with a fear of heights can enjoy the ride with absolutely no care in the world.Witnessing such an odd-looking landscape with such diversity of colors spread throughout is an experience not to be missed.
