The National Park of Cappadocia has some of the most astonishing geology we have ever experienced on our travels with a fascinating history to match. Situated in the heart of central Anatolia the region spans over 24,000 square kilometres with unusual and distinct landscape. from subterranean cities, to tall fairy chimneys, houses carved out of the soft tufa rock and deep gorges with valleys that stretch for miles. Quite simply it is the most extraordinary region that we feature.
