Cappadocia Turkey

Can anything dreamier than this? Here’s below good part surreal photos of hot air balloons soaring over Cappadocia truly a historical region in Central Anatolia in Turkey. Cappadocia is famous for its unfamiliar moon-like landscape. It's a beautiful mixture of naturally formed hills, bottomless canyons, valleys, and conical rock formations known as "fairy chimneys" that makes this region so exclusive. It would be every day, beginning at sunrise; hundreds of balloons are fired up across the land, every taking dozens of tourists for an hour or so above the surrealistic site. It should come as no wonder that this hot air balloon experience is often listed as one of the best in the world. It is including in CNN's list of seven breathtaking ballooning adventures, Cappadocia is right up there will Albuquerque, New Mexico and Luberon, France. As they state, "Book a private balloon flight in Cappadocia, Turkey, and you will get to see lava deposits at Turkey's Mount Erciyes twisted by 2 millennia of erosion into hundreds of pillars and minarets famous as fairy chimneys, making the landscape in the country's central Anatolian region look like a set from Lost in Space. Snapper Afonso Salcedo describes it like this, when the sky fills up with hot air balloons rising gradually in unison with the Sun. What a treat, the silence of the air the chimneys, rocks and caves under you.
