Cappadocia

My trip in Cappadocia, Turkey was one of the highlights during my time in this country. I came in without much expectations but it blew me away. I could say it is one of my favourite destinations in Turkey to date.

One of the best ways to enjoy Cappaodocia is by hiking the famous Red and Rose Valley. This is one of the recommended activities while in Cappadocia and sure did not miss out on the experience. You can get tips and tricks to take with you during your hike, should you decide to embark on this adventure.

Finally, I share with you my top things to see or do when in Cappadocia. I also share tips on the top free things you could do, which is suitable for the budget travellers out there.

Hiking the Red and Rose Valley in Cappadocia

As I walked along the well worn trail through the valley, my eyes couldn’t help but look around in amazement at all the doorways cut into the rock. Abandoned homes and chapels that once was full of life. I’m hiking the Red and Rose Valley in Cappadocia.
