Cappadocia is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Turkey. It is located in the centre of Turkey, almost 700km from Istanbul. It is a land of natural wonder famous for its picturesque valleys, unique cave hotels, mystical underground cities and fairy chimneys (unique rock formations). Cappadocia is also most popular for its breathtaking hot air balloon rides at sunrise.
The ancient valleys of Cappadocia offer many hiking trails. There is so much hiking here that it will take you at least a week to explore them all. Goreme is one of the main highlights of Cappadocia. It is home to an open-air museum and historical sites, home to hidden churches and exotic frescoes.
Unlike popular belief, Cappadocia is not a city but an entire region. It has small towns like Goreme, Uchisar, Urgup and Ortahisar, among others. These areas are surrounded by three dormant volcanoes - Mt Erciyes, Mt Hasan and Mt Gullu. These have contributed to the exotic landscape of Cappadocia and the unique cave hotels. These cave hotels are a sought-after experience, quintessential to Cappadocia. It is also the place where you don't want to miss a sunrise!
