Cappadocia the city of fantasy and tourism in Turkey

Unusual geological formations of grassy hills and towering rocks of otherworldly beauty

This fantastical terrain tells of human history here, as people have long used the soft stone in the area, seeking underground shelter in the caves with wonderful architecture after leaving the countryside.

Cappadocia is in eastern Anatolia, in the heart of what is now known as Turkey. It is a high plateau over 1,000 meters high pierced by volcanic peaks, with Mount Erciyes near Kayseri being the highest at 3,916 meters.

Cappadocia's historical borders are ambiguous, especially towards the west. To the south, the Taurus Mountains form the border with Cilicia and separate Cappadocia from the Mediterranean. To the west, Cappadocia borders the historical regions of Lycaonia to the southwest and Galatia to the northwest.

Cappadocia is one of the most famous tourist destinations in Turkey, as it contains many areas with unique geological, historical and cultural features.

Tourist Cappadocia includes 4 cities: Nevsehir, Kayseri, Aksaray, and Nigde.

The most famous tourist activity in Cappadocia

Hot air balloon ride

Hot air balloons in Cappadocia have become one of the most popular travel list items in the world. It's not hard to see why, when you float seamlessly over Goreme's historic cave dwellings with over 100 other balloons at sunrise in what can only be compared to a fantasy scene.

Every year, more than half a million people enjoy hot air balloon rides in Cappadocia, an astounding number that makes this region the number one hot air balloon destination in the world.

Walking in the Red Valley through the Rose Valley

When it comes to hiking in Cappadocia, it's hard to get past the Red Valley. Sharp sandstone edges glow a deep, vibrant red as the sun shines through the unique landscape in the last moments of the sunset each night.

You can go for a hike in it walking through the Rose Valley, one of Cappadocia's most beautiful tourist attractions, a vast rocky valley, with three churches adorned with ceiling carvings and sparkling frescoes, several hiking trails, and a wide range of amazing rock formations spread in different shades of pink. Or you can Drive straight to the sunset vantage point to relax at the coffee shop

Fairies chimneys

It is one of the most mysterious places in Turkey. There are many fairy chimneys in Cappadocia, mostly in the valleys of Urgup, Uchisar, and Avanos, the most famous of which are located in the Pasabag Valley, on the Goreme-Avanos highway.

Many stories and legends spread around it, so it was known as “fairy chimneys”, which are natural rock formations formed by wind, rain, and floods, over a million years old, and taking the form of mushrooms.

It was used in ancient times as a shelter and temple, once you see it you can imagine how ancient monks lived in seclusion on top of these magical pillars.

Uchisar Castle

Uchisar is the gateway to Cappadocia, home to the highest peak and most panoramic point in the region.

Located on the Nevsehir-Goreme road, 5 km from Goreme, Uchisar Castle is a huge fortress carved into the rocks, with multiple floors and windows. It was used to protect against invaders during the Roman and Byzantine eras and was also used as a watchtower during the Seljuk period.

It contains a group of tunnels, caves, water cisterns, and tombs carved in the rocks, and it offers its visitors a wonderful opportunity to see the Cappadocia region from the top, valleys, and cave dwellings surrounding the town of Uchisar in a panoramic scene that catches the eye, so it was known as the "Eye of Cappadocia".
