Have you ever looked above and wondered how the world looks from a bird’s eye? If so then this is the perfect opportunity for you to take to the skies and look down upon the wonders of Pamukkale and Hierapolis. If these ancient wonders weren’t enough for you to feast your eyes on from the ground, you now have the chance to witness them from above.

As you soar above the snowy white travertines and float over ancient ruins you will feel as free as a bird soaring millennia ago. Your pilot will be on hand to point out places of interest and to help you get the most out of your journey as you float on the thermals that make the area a haven for hot air ballooning.

Pamukkale is protected as a UNESCO heritage site, and it is easy to see why as you take in the calcium cascades from a point of view seen only by the more adventurous tourist. The baskets are large and comfortable, and you will feel safe and secure as you snap away at the sights below. Not to mention you will also be treated to the warm hues as the sun rises on the horizon.
