Hidden Trails Of Cappadocia
Explore the magical valleys, fairy chimneys & cave dwellings of Cappadocia Experience Turkish hospitality in traditional villages Tour an underground city with 8 floors
Land of the 'Fairy Chimneys' After enjoying a walking tour of 'Old Stamboul' we fly to Kayseri, then drive to Ihlara Valley, where our walking begins. Flanked on both sides by vertical cliffs, this majestic ravine provided shelter for Byzantine priests who painted wonderful frescoes in black, orange and carmine in their vaulted churches. We explore on foot the underground city of Kaymakli and then hike through a surreal landscape of strangely eroded volcanic rock. Anatolian Villages & Hospitality Walking through this unique landscape, where history and geology are so dramatically fused, we also encounter the warm and friendly face of the Cappadocian people. Each day we set out from our comfortable base at Goreme, following little known trails past orchards and vineyards to traditional villages and through landscapes that seem to belong in another world.
