Top 7 Things To Do in Cappadocia

A place like no other, Cappadocia will captivate you with it's incredibly bizarre, yet beautiful landscape. This semi-arid region in central Turkey offers fascinating history, museums, palaces, beaches, and white cliff waterfalls -- the best of everything you'd want on a holiday!

Goreme Open Air Museum

This is a must-see wonderland with rock-cut churches and vibrant frescoes.  A former Byzantine monastic settlement that housed some 20 monks, it's a UNESCO World Heritage Site. 

Kaymakli Underground City

Houses were built around nearly 100 tunnels of this underground city. This gerbil-like metropolis of tunnels was excavated as early as Hittite times -- and four floors remain open for exploring. 

Devrent Valley

Otherwise known as 'Imagination Valley', this is astoundingly absurd and mesmerizing valley contains a variety of rock formations shaped like animals, all naturally created by nature. Enter the rock formed zoo!

Ihlara Valley

This canyon was formed thousands of years ago, and flows the 7-mile distance from Ihlara village to Selime village. Walk along the gushing water past the vineyards, poplars, and pistachio trees.

Pasabag

Now we enter monks valley on the road to Zelve, and the dream continues with pillars made of earth standing tall in the middle of the vineyard, which stylites and hermits once used to hide inside.

Topdeck Cave Restaurant

One of Cappadocia's top rated restaurants, this cave eatery in Goreme is worth a visit. All ingredients used are from local farmers, but there's just 10 tables, so don't delay!

Ala Daglar National Park

Also known as the 'The Alps of Turkey', this mountain region is popular for mountaineering, hiking, and trekking among waterfalls, fir trees, birds, wild goats, bears, lynx, and sable.

Cappadocia: Our Tips

Terrorist attacks have happened in Turkey. Is it safe to go there?

Millions of foreigners visit Turkey every year and most visits are trouble-free. Sirnak, Mardin, Sanliurfa, Gaziantep, Kilis, and Hatay provinces are the places advised to avoid.

Do I have to be careful about how I dress in a country with many Muslim people?

Tourists should respect religious customs, particularly during the month of Ramadan. Dress modestly when visiting mosques or religious shrines.

Cappadocia: Royal King Flight by Royal Balloon Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer, 08/20/2016

It was breathe taking! Recommend it to anyone going to cappadocia

The whole process ran very smoothly, the company was in contact with our hostel so we always had updates on pick up times and were confident they would come to our door step. They just asked for our names and then took us to the location. The actually balloon ride was amazing! One of the coolest things I've ever done, would recommend it to anyone. I was short for money as I am backpacking but this is one thing I was happy to spend a little bit over budget for so worth it!

Magnificent views, amazing crew, skilled pilot

Although the usher who arranges groups was a little bit loud and literally shouting at clients, the trip with Anatolian Balloons was amazing and the pilot was really skilled and experienced. The balloon had 20 people while others had 36

Well organised and a great one in a lifetime experience

The Hot Air Ballooning experience was well organised and well run. The pick up was on time, the pilot was in control the whole time and the balloon ride was spectacular.
