Cappadocia is situated in an area which is largely in Nevsehir. The region has incredible rocky landscape. Various contours, colours and shape of Rocky Mountains. The landscape is very different from other places visited by me, and I am still AW-STRUCK.
We took a flight from Antalya to Cappadocia (Pegasus Airline from Antalya to Kayseri). Reached Kayseri in the evening and took a bus provided by our tour operator to the hotel.
All of us had one goal for Cappadocia.....The Hot Air Balloon Ride. Though our tour operator had given us an option to book it, we found it quite expensive and did our own R&D and booked it for the next morning and saved almost 100 Euro. Though it took quiet of our adrenaline rush to settle down with the booking, negations and availability.
The deal consisted of pick & drop to hotel + the 1 st ride + some snacks. It is always advised to go for the 1 st ride as you get to see the sunrise (now does that bring a smile to your face...) and the weather and wind both stays pleasant.
We were supposed to get picked up by 3 am and driven to the spot from where to board the balloon, Goreme. The driver was 15 min late but made sure, we reach safe and on time.
