On a busy day over 100 balloons can go up so the sight of the balloons preparing in the light of dawn is an unforgettable experience.  Soon, with a 360 degree vista of the dawn, you will be soaring up and over  the magical landscape that is Cappadocia, taking in views of Pigeon Valley, Zemi Valley and the Pasabag Monks Valley in one breathtaking adventure.

The surreal atmosphere becomes evermore real as you watch your balloon being fired for you and the lightening skyline. Perhaps something that you won’t read in a travel blog is that there is an earthly silence that washes over the fairy chimneys as you soar above the volcanic deposits, puncuated only by the whoosh of hot air filling the ballons as you rise ever higher.

The balloons travel with the atmosphere, so no one can be sure of their exact landing spot, wherever the wind blows you will be, but it should be noted that all balloons are covered by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation and only allowed to fly when the weather conditions are right.  This rule applies to all balloon companies without exception, so you can rest assured, if you are flying, you are safe and the conditions are right.  And its not over when you land…

Cappadocia is truly one of the most beautiful landscapes on Earth.  The sheer magnitude of the magic is almost hard to believe.
