Trips and Itineraries for Göreme
Cappadocia Hot Air Balloon: Up above the world so high!
Around Turkey in 15 days (detailed itinerary)
Weekend Getaways from Göreme
262 Kms from Göreme
Some 300 kilometres away from Cappadocia, the dynamic capital of Turkey, Ankara, is best accessed by bus. The journey should be around five hours long.
We were flying over the rippled valleys of Cappadocia which we planned to visit later on the same day. We saw Rose valley, Pigeon valley, Open Air Goreme Museum, etc.; all from a bird’s eye view. A pilot can only guide the balloon vertically, as the horizontal path is clearly directed by the wind around. Dennis was professional and fluent in English and was properly describing about the sights we were flying over. He had years of experience in flying the balloon and we felt absolutely safe while flying with him.
