About Cappadocia, Your Turkey Tour Destination

Cappadocia Tour :

Cappadocia is one of the most popular destinations in Turkey. The area’s daily hot air balloon rides at sunrise have become something of legend and people flock here to get the best photos. The “fairy chimney” rock formations that make up the landscape were formed thousands of years ago as a result of volcanic eruptions. The earliest documented settlers here were the Hittites around 2,500 BC. Over the next few thousand years, control over the region passed between the Assyrians, Phrygians, Lydians and Persians before finally coming under Roman rule around 17 AD. With the Romans came Christianity and communities started sprouting all over the region. During that time, people were being persecuted for following Christianity so they built underground cities and carved monasteries into the rock formations as a way to survive while still being able to practice their religion. In 1071, the Seljuq Turks took control over the region. It eventually was annexed into the rapidly growing Ottoman Empire after they defeated the Byzantines for control of the region in 1453. With the Ottomans came Islam and the area was converted.

Archeologists have uncovered the underground cities built by the early Christian settlers and the most famous is called Derinkuyu. The city is 18 stories deep and is open for visitors daily. However, for safety reasons, visitors can only tour the first 8 stories. Day tours of the area also include the Goreme Open Air Museum and Selime Monastery. Both are well-preserved monasteries carved into the rocks. Visitors can still see the frescoes painted on to the rock. Other highlights of the area include Uchisar Castle, a castle carved into a boulder with a stunning view of the region and the Ihlara Valley, a beautiful scenic gorge that is a treat to hike through.

A trip to Cappadocia isn’t complete with out a sunrise hot air balloon ride. However, in the past few years, their fame has skyrocketed and the balloons fill up fast. If you are unable to ride in one, the next best thing is to have breakfast at your hotel while the balloons fly overhead. The site of all of the balloons in the air is the next best thing!

If you’ve ever wanted to spend the night in a cave, then Cappadocia is the perfect place for you! Many of the hotels are carved into the rocks that line the landscape of the region. However, despite their cave-like appearance, they are all fully furnished with modern facilities. Don’t miss out on the unique experience of staying in one of these hotels.

Due to the volcanic tuff that covers the area, the land is quite fertile and the perfect condition to grow grapes! As a result, the region is also known for wine making. You can take tours of the wineries and see how Turkey’s wines compare to those around the world!

    Kumuha kami ng isang 2-araw na Cappadocia tour mula sa Turkeytrips, napaka interesado sa amin at maraming salamat. Ang gabay ay napaka-kaalaman at ginugol namin ang dalawang napakagandang araw, medyo maikli at nakakapagod ngunit sulit ito. Napakaganda ng hotel at ang mainit na air balloon tour ay perpekto, imposible na mabilang kung gaano karaming mga lobo doon, ngunit sinabi ng piloto na hindi hihigit sa 150 lobo ang lumilipas araw-araw at napuno silang lahat kaya mahal ang mga presyo, ngunit binigyan kami ng Turkeytrips ng napakagandang presyo dahil gumawa kami ng ilang pananaliksik. Maraming salamat sa mga paglalakbay sa Turkey.

  6. :

    Excellent trip…
    It’s been exactly a year and I still can’t get over how much fun this was, especially the Ilhara Valley. It was just divine. It was a perfect day. Things went smoothly from airport departure, arrival, transfer, tour commencement, sightseeing, walking through the valley, the lunch, the beautiful and friendly cats and ducks, the Selime Cathedral, the trip back to Istanbul. It was fantastic in every sense. The timing at each location was appropriate. I never felt rushed.
