Mojojack's Travels

Last time I was in Cappadocia, Turkey, it was the late 1980s with barely a hotel, no hot air balloons and a couple of old mopeds for hire to get around the “fairy chimneys” and valleys.

We camped on the roof of a small family hotel and had to block holes in the shower walls from the peeping eye of the dirty old granddad.

Thirty years later Göreme is a tawny vista of elegant cave hotels, wedding photo scenes, and drones chasing morning balloon flights. I like that people can still wander the national park themselves if they haven’t joined a horse or quad bike tour.

We took three tours over two days and rested for the rest of the week as I was a bit under the weather. Here are some photos.

Hot Air Balloon sunrise flight (Butterfly Balloons – recommended, but check where they start from if you want to fly over Goreme town). 100+ euro each. One hour flight.

Horse Trek at Sunset (recommended but not with the company we went with – Dalton Brothers, a pack of gung-ho cowboys). 350 TL each, two hours.

The Green Tour – recommended full day outing to an underground city, deep canyon walk, Selime cave monastery, onyx factory and view of Pigeon Valley. 40 euro each.
