Is hot air ballooning safe?
Hot air ballooning in Cappadocia is quite safe. With its gentle winds and dramatic scenery, Cappadocia is a balloonists’ dream. After taking the balloon up to give passengers an overview of the region, they descend slowly into one of the valleys, piloting their way over treetops and past isolated fairy chimneys. Old irrigation channels and ancient agricultural terracing suddenly become visible from the balloon’s basket drifting just meters overhead. The intermittent roar of the burner startles birds in their nests just feet away from the basket and sends the odd fox scurrying for cover. A 4X4 vehicle follows the balloon throughout the trip; when it is finally time to come down if the wind is gentle enough, the balloonists can actually land on the trailer towed by the vehicle. After a celebratory glass of sparkling wine, passengers are taken back to their hotels in time for a late breakfast.
