About me

CAPPADOCIA

Cappadocia is an area in Central Turkey within the region of Anatolia. Its history dates back to the Hittites in the bronze age and many stories in the bible take place here. During Christian times, more than 300 cave churches and 30 underground cities were carved out by locals.

Its unusual terrain is owed to its volcanic past, which was very active until 5 million years ago. Since then, rivers, flood waters and erosion have carved out bizarre rock formations all over the region. Some of the most recognizable are called fairy chimneys. Thousands of these stony landmarks share a similar shape, somewhere between a mushroom, and well, a phallus.

Discover the amazing landscapes of Cappadocia as you walk through some of the strangest rock formations you will ever see. This is one place where the word 'unique' really applies. At first glance, they resemble some unearthly or prehistoric abandoned city and yet, just as they were home to the persecuted in the past, today some now house more modern dwellings.

As if this landscape were not enough, you have the opportunity to walk under the watchful eye of snow-capped Hasandag at the beautiful Ihlara Gorge, where was a broken fault line and the River Melendiz has eroded a dramatic chasm in the earth, a remarkable contrast to all that has come before. Everywhere you go you will be rewarded with surprising views and warm hospitality.

“ The surreal landscapes of Cappadocia are unlike anything else on Earth. They will simply take your breath away.”
