We guarantee you that you are not the only one thinking about going to Cappadocia for a hot air balloon ride, so book a flight days in advance for a sure schedule.
All of you will come across the fairy chimneys, which are natural phenomenon, created by Mother Nature herself. Another place to lay your eyes upon are the houses carved into stone, there are even some carved into the fairy chimneys themselves. There’s so much history in them, yes they are marvelous to look at but the people of the past had great use of them.
These cities were used as a protection from the Muslim Arabs during the past war. Entrances were sealed by huge stone doors, they were storages, chapels and such. Not only that, but it’s also connected to other cities using underground tunnels. Considering that they didn’t have the tools present today and housing nearly 20,000 people, it’s a true engineering feat that you wouldn’t want to miss.
