CAPPADOCIA INFORMATION & HISTORY
If you wish to discover Turkey in depth, travel to Cappadocia is certainly a must. We suggest staying at least three nights there. The best times are March to June and Septemberto November. There are a variety of activities you may join: Unique place for Hot Air Ballooning in Turkey is Cappadocia. For adventure, Horse Riding, Mountain Bike or Jeep safari, Cappadocia is selected as one of the best areas in Europe. In the evenings, you may either just enjoy your stay at your hotel or go in Sarihan Caravanserai near Avanos to see the whirling Dervishes of Mevlana, founder of Sufism in Anatolia (Turkey).If you are interested in any of the activities listed above, we may include that in one of the following suggested day trips. We highly recommend extending your stay in Cappadocia as we believe you will enjoy every minute of your time in such a unique area with its welcoming people. Cappadocia, which used to be known as Katpatuka (Land of Beautiful Horses) in old Persian, is a region in central Anatolia, 300 kilometers southeast of Ankara, the capital city of modern-day Turkey. Cappadocia is known for its unusual landscape, the result of the violent eruption of volcanoes, Mount Erciyes (3,917 meters) and Mount Hasan (3,268 meters), some 3 million years ago. Lava and volcanic dust and ashes covered the region, which eventually hardened into a thick layer of tuff. Over the years, water and wind eroded the soft and brittle volcanic surface, creating deep valleys and many different types of strange rock formations, such as rock cones and fairy chimneys.
Archaeological evidence shows that Cappadocia was inhabited as early as the Paleolithic period (c. 2.5 million BCE 10,000 BCE), and continued to serve as home to the peoples of many different civilizations, including the Hittites, Greeks, and the Romans. Dwellings were dug into the rocks and provided shelter from the environment, defense against foreign invasions, and refuge from religious persecution. These dwellings interconnect, forming some two hundred to three hundred underground cities, equipped with elaborate air ventilation systems, water storage units, and in some cases, even stables and wineries. One of the most famous and well excavated is Kaymakli, where Christians hid from the pagan Roman invaders during the seventh century. Parts of the underground cities are still used by Cappadocia's present-day inhabitants. For example, underground canals are used to regulate water in the nearby farmland, and local produce, such as potatoes and citrus fruits, is stored in subterranean storage units. People still live in above-ground rock structures, some of which are even used as hotels and inns. Cappadocia is a popular tourist destination.
