"Go to Cappadocia and stay in a..." Rock Sites of Cappadocia Tip by NorthernTrav

Rock Sites of Cappadocia, Turkey: 38 reviews and 71 photos

Go to Cappadocia and stay in a Cave room.... around a 1000 years old carved out of the solid rock (tufa - compressed volcanic ash). Go for a walk in the hillsides around Goreme and see how they lived and what they left behind.
The harsh landscape that they struggled to exist in so that they could continue their lives... and yet they were able to create beauty and a balanced life.
