Turkey.. Cappadocia balloons fly thousands of tourists


11 thousand and 761 tourists participated in balloon trips that fly over the landmarks of the famous tourist region of Cappadocia, central Turkey, last February.

According to data published by the state of Nouşehir on Thursday, balloon flights over Cappadocia were organized for only 8 days last February due to bad weather in the region.

The state indicated that the number of tourists who participated in balloon trips to enjoy the sights of Cappadocia amounted to 11,761 people in the aforementioned period.


The number of tourists who visited museums and ruins in the region last month reached 99,389 people.

The Cappadocia region is distinguished as one of the most unusual and beautiful landscapes in the world and was classified by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization “UNESCO” as a World Heritage Site.

The region is most famous for its “fairy chimneys” or “devil’s tables”, which are stones in the form of columns topped with rocks and formed naturally as a result of the influence of winds and atmospheric factors on the volcanic rocks that abound in the region.
