21 Visual Reasons Hot Air Balloon Cappadocia Turkey

The Cappadocia’s are located in Central Anatolia, in Turkey.

This entire area is a geological phenomena. The fairy chimneys and the unique and very Escher like formations make this a place where it is best seen from the air, via a hot air balloon.

These hot air balloon rides tend to go at dawn to allow you to see the light play on the shapes of the unique landscape.

The local village of Goreme is where people live in caves as troglodytes and is the starting point to see this ethereal landscape by hot air balloon.

We were very fortunate to be able to stay in the village in a cave house as well as Gordon taking these stunning photos from the hot air balloon. I ran along the fields and through the fairy chimneys following his balloon as best as I could.

If you get the opportunity, visit this entire region, as it is one of the friendliest and culturally enriching places that we have visited.
