Are Cappadocia Hot Air Balloon Rides Cold ?

Jump to last reply

I will preface this question wIth a blanket apology for asking a possibly self-evident silly question, but how cold is it up there in the hot air balloons over Cappadocia? We'll be taking our ride on October 24.

Earlier this year we went to the top of Haleakala on Maui to see the sunrise, and the temps were around 30F. Admittedly, that was at 10,000 feet, but it was also Hawaii. We had been warned of the temps so I packed my silk longies, a hoodie and some gloves, and I was comfortable. (Other folks came with the blankets from their hotel rooms.) I'm not really anxious to take long underwear and gloves to Turkey, but I don't want to be too cold to enjoy the Cappadocia landscape, either.

Six more weeks!
