CAPPADOCIA

Cappadocia region is the place where nature and history come together most beautifully within the world. While geographic events are forming fairy chimneys, during the historical period, humans had carried the signs of thousand years old civilizations with carving houses and churches within these earth pillars and decorating them with frisks. Traditional Cappadocian houses and dovecotes carved into stones are showing the uniqueness of the region. These houses are constructed on the feet of the mountain via rocks or cut stones. Rock, which is the only construction material of the region.

It is almost impossible to exaggerate the wonders of Cappadocia, where for centuries people have been carving churches, monasteries, and entire towns out of the soft, volcanic turf. Even before mankind got to work on the landscape, wind and rain had fashioned it into fantastic, otherworldly shapes. The valley is crowded with forests of towering pinnacles (sometimes referred to as “fairy chimneys”) colored in eye-popping shades of pink, bluish white and yellow ochre. You are unlikely to forget your Cappadocia experience, complete with private ballooning over the lunar landscape.
