Cappadocia is the one and only place of its kind on this Earth with mountains, the shape of cone, some made of solid sand, others of soft stone. Arriving at this place gives you an unearthly feel as if you lost your way and found one to a city that could have once been a home to aliens. The colors of the mountains is another thing that mesmerized me, some white and some yellow, some red and some pink; as if they were spray painted from the sky by a gigantic spacecraft.
The region of Cappadocia is located mostly in Nevşehir province in the Central Anatolia region of Turkey and covers the towns of Göreme, Uçhisar and Ürgüp although nothing much noticeable in the city of Nevşehir itself. I had the time and opportunity to travel through Cappadocia last month, although unfortunately just for two days and a night. I walked the roads, streets, trails and paths of Göreme and Uçhisar and anything in between. I opted not to choose a guided tour, just use a map that I was given at my hotel reception. This had me lost from trails and a few times I ended up in areas where a foot had never been stepped before.
Majority of the houses and hotels themselves are built inside the caves in the mountains. You shouldn’t miss the opportunity of staying in one and make most of the unique experience you are going to have when you travel this amazing moonscape.
