Cappadocia, a semi-arid region in central Turkey, is known for its distinctive “fairy chimneys,” tall, cone-shaped rock formations clustered in Monks Valley, Göreme and elsewhere. Other notables sites include Bronze Age homes carved into valley walls by troglodytes (cave dwellers) and later used as refuges by early Christians. The 100m-deep Ihlara Canyon houses numerous rock-face churches.
Cappadocia is a geological oddity of honeycombed hills and towering boulders of otherworldly beauty. Whether you're wooed here by the hiking potential, the history or the bragging rights of becoming a modern troglodyte for a night, it's the lunarscape panoramas that you'll remember.
The best way to fully take in the scenery at Cappadocia is to soar above it in a hot air balloon for panoramic, aerial views of the region. If you don’t like the idea of being suspended in the air, however, it’s still worth seeing—opt to walk or cycle around the site instead.
Cappadox 2018 a gathering of music, contemporary art, gastronomy, and outdoor disciplines in events that bring together national and international creatives with participants from all over the world, Cappadox is back this year with the theme "Silence."
Thanks to the great interest of Cappadoxians and Cappadocia residents, the festival was extended to take place over 6 days, and will be held from June 14-19. Why not experience a great festival while you're there.
