ANKARA, Sept. 21 (Xinhua) -- Taking a hot air balloon ride is an unforgettable experience for the tourists to Cappadocia, a popular tourist attraction in central Turkey known for its Goreme National Park, which was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1985.

From the flying balloon, the tourists can enjoy the spectacular bird's-eye view of the sweeping landscape featuring many fairy chimneys rock formations, some of which are as high as 40 meters. The formations are a result of the erosion of the volcaniclastic rock composed of solid volcanic ash by wind and rain over the long period of thousands of years or even longer.
