This was one of the most memorable part of our 10 days trip to Turkey. It was freezing cold for someone from Mumbai. We were picked up from our hotel at 5am in Zero degree C temperature. But the moment we saw the balloon getting prepared, we forgot everything about cold.
It’s an hour’s ride which completely depends on the weather and air. They take you down to the valleys and close to villages. There are moments when you feel like if you stretch your arm (provided you have space in the basket) on of your fingers will touch the walls of houses.
There are packages available based on hour and number of people in a basket. We had opted for 24 people basket as it was cheapest and also made sense in the freezing weather ;-).
All the companies providing hot air balloon rides are same, the only difference is your pilot. If your pilot is good then you will have an amazing time on the ride.
Its a beautiful place and locals are very nice. It should be a must visit place for all the people who love adventure, history, calm, serene, food, I can literally go on. 🙂
I will visit this place again.
