Hot Air Ballooning Over Turkey’s Incredible Landscape

Cappadocia is an area in Central Anatolia in Turkey with some of the most dramatic landscape in Europe. Hot air balloons mixed in makes for even a more colorful sight.

The Cappadocia region was formed as a result of volcanic eruption approximately 9 to 3 million years ago.

Over hundreds and thousands of years, the sedimentary rocks and deposits from volcanoes were eroded into hundreds of spectacular pillars and minaret-like forms.

The tunnel complexes formed entire towns with as many as eight different stories hidden underground, making it one of the world’s largest cave dwelling complexes.
