Balloons of Cappadocia - XX by Suppi-lu-liuma Balloons of Cappadocia - XX by Suppi-lu-liuma
Cappadocia, Turkey.

Balloon tours are a good way to grasp the landscape from above. "Passengers" are picked up from the hotel at 5AM in the summer and around 6:30AM during winter. The departures are generally from the Avanos-Cavusin region.

Hot air balloons, which generally have a capacity of 15 people, are heated with propane. There is no predefined itinerary, as the balloon is driven by the wind, followed by a vehicle on the ground. It goes up as high as 1,000m., sometimes as low as to touch the leaves of the trees next to the "fairy chimneys". Weather conditions are closely-monitored and tours are organized on suitable mornings only. The landing is done thru the use of a rope that the land crew picks up from below.

A champagne waits the passengers after a calm and spectacular tour of the valley.
