Cappadocia is an amazing and spectacular landscape that has been sculpted by erosion over thousands of years. These cave like dwellings and rock-hewn sanctuaries date back to the Byzantine post-Iconoclastic period, as far back as 4th Century. Today what is left are these amazing troglodyte villages, underground cities that once contained human habitat and beautiful valleys that go for as far as the eye can see.
Cappadocia’s sweep of surreal valleys is one of Turkey’s greatest tourist attractions, and one of the most popular ways to view this landscape is from above.
This is one of the world’s best places to visit for hot air ballooning.
Floating in the morning stillness above the rock cones, wavy valley ridges, and thin rock pillars known locally as fairy chimneys is a photographer’s dream and allows a bird’s-eye perspective across these valley networks, which were created by volcanic action and shaped into their present form by wind and rain.
