Above the fairy chimneys

Escaping a fairytale must be like entering the honeycomb landscape of Kapadokya. Rock columns, pyramids, pinnacles, mushrooms, chimneys and whatever your fantasy allows you to see reach as far as 40 meters into the sky. Volcanic eruptions created this surreal moonscape and human hands performed equally incredible works here. The rocky wonderland has a network of human-created caves, churches and tunnel complexes connecting entire towns with as many as eight different stories hidden underground.

From above the otherworldly beauty of these valleys left us gobsmacked and gave us the biggest ‘wow’ moment on our trip through Turkey. Scroll down and see yourself.
