Cappadocia is famous for its unique fairy chimney volcanic cones, valleys, underground cities.

Some 388,833 visitors took hot-air balloon trips to experience a bird's-eye view of Turkiye's world-famous scenic Cappadocia in 2021.
Cappadocia is famous for its unique "fairy chimney" volcanic cones, valleys, underground cities, boutique hotels, and houses carved into rocks, churches, chapels, and shelters used during the early years of the Christian faith.
The region, located in Central Anatolia's Nevsehir province, has been preserved as a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1985.
To get an authentic experience, tourists from all over the world prefer to experience Cappadocia's landscapes and peak-like rock houses up in the sky.
Last year, balloon tours were possible in 216 days due to adverse weather conditions.
The highest number of people participated in the hot air balloon tour was in October with 76,104.

"The weather condition in Cappadocia is favorable for hot air balloon rides. We can fly about 220 days a year, which is a very significant number when we look at the world average," Mehmet Dinler, head of Anatolian Hot Air Balloon Operators Association, told Anadolu Agency. -
