Perhaps one of the most photographed sites in Turkey is that of Pamukkale with its snowy white rock formations that appear to cascade down the side of the mountain creating small pools where the thermal waters gather as they make their way down over the rocks. One of the best ways to see this unique sight is by air and what better way to do so than by hot air balloon?
This is a breathtaking experience as you take to the skies and soar above the geological wonder below. As you gain height in your balloon you will be able to look over the vast historical site that includes not only the cascades but the ancient city of Hierapolis and nearby Necropolis. You will be able to look down upon the sarcophagi, tombs and relics, and clearly see the size of the city as it spreads out below you.
You will be able to look across the municipality of Denizli, as far as the often snow capped peaks in the distant Mentese Mountain rage and maybe even catch a glimpse of the far away Aegean Sea. There is nothing that will quite prepare you for the panoramic views that you will have from the safety of your basket under the hot air balloon. You can forget magic carpet rides and feel happy in the knowledge that a balloon ride over the travertines of Pamukkale is every bit as magical if not more so.
