Get a bird's eye view of the natural rock formations at Goreme National Park. As a World Heritage Site, the park's ancient structures have been protected from development. Many have been left untouched, though some were carved out and used as churches during the Roman period. More recently, some have been transformed into housing and restaurants. The park covers 40 sq km (15.4 sq mi), and while it may seem untraditional, the best way to see it is from above. Consider taking a hot air balloon ride over the entire park and, along with the landscape, you'll likely see dozens of other balloons in the distance. Ask your hotel for a suggestion on who to book with, as there are many companies throughout Cappadocia that organize these rides.

A must see place when visiting Cappadocia. Tall rock formations, carved caves and ideally the sunset create a magical scenery that all tourists will love. more »
I totally agree with many other travelers here that entire Cappadocia is a worldwide unique place, so I wont waste your time here explaining how wonderful it is (I'll do that in separate attractions..... more »
I will make my glowing review of Goreme NP a quick one, so that you have enough time to book your plane tickets and arrange your ground transportation. Cappadocia should be considered a world wonder..... more »
Spectacular nature area with many different types of rock formations in different shapes and colors. There are other places where they have similar things, but here you can find all of them in one place and a small area. Highly recommended to visit this place and to watch it from the air in a hot air balloon. You will never forget this. Just fantastic.
A must see! A diffrent Experience
We did the hot air balloon, beautiful to see from the air. I would totally recommend it, amazing and stunning views of the caves and homes. I'm not sure if you can drive by this, certain parts I know you can't drive by it, can only see it from the air.
This is where the hot air balloons take off. We were fortunate enough to get to catch a ride in the balloons in December. It was our 4th try, but we finally had good enough weather for a balloon flight and it was AWESOME!
The hiking trails possible in this park are almost unlimited. There quite good indication but be ready to go through rough time paths some times. Go early to avoid the hot weather of mid day. There is several tea spot along the way. Bring cash and try an orange pomegranate juice.
