Cappadocia Tours and Travels
If there is one place on the planet that is guaranteed to blow your mind, it is Cappadocia. Situated in Central Turkey and consisting of thousands of bizarre conical shaped rocks with pointed tips, this fascinating landscape is utterly unique in the world. The rugged plains stretch out for miles all around and are a reddish hue in colour. While nature has certainly done her bit to make this region one of the most spectacular on earth, man has contributed to its impressiveness as well by carving a network of caves and tunnels in to the surprisingly soft rock.Read More
