Information about Cappadocia

Cappadocia is a city positioned in Turkey.  It has magnificent terrain with one-of-a-kind geological formations.  One of the most stunning rock creations is Fairy Chimney.  Volcanic eruptions created this wondrous sight.  The lava flows of lava molded rock were sculpted into twisting valleys with curvaceous cliff faces by rain and wind.  The tallest mountain in the region is Mt. Erciyes. 

There are two caves in close proximity to the meeting tower and it is believed that at least one of them had been expanded by mankind at some point.  It is thought that monks in ancient times had ventured to the summit a few times. There are awesome historical mansions and cave houses in Goreme, Uchisar, Guzelyurt, and Urgup. Underground cities that are absolutely stunning to tour and should not be overlooked are Ozkanak, Derinkuyu, and Kaymakli.  The typical facilities found in these cities included rooms for storage,  cellars, wine and oil presses, stables, and chapels. Specific to the Derinkuyu complex is an expansive room that possesses a barrel vaulted ceiling and is situated on the second floor.  For tourists that want some high above ground sightseeing, hot-air ballooning is a terrific activity. 

Cappadocia has outstanding restaurants where you can indulge in scrumptious meals as well as the welcoming ambiance.  The weather is a continental climate with cold, snowy winters and dry, hot summers.  There isn’t much rainfall so activities that take place in the outdoors aren’t affected too greatly. Please take Turkey into consideration when organizing your upcoming trek.
