Spring has knocked on the door of Cappadocia's beauty.
Spring has arrived to Cappadocia which is famous with its fascinating chimney rocks, impressing hot air balloon trips, underground cities and boutique hotels carved into rocks.
Cappadocia which is in the list of UNESCO world heritage hosts about 2.5 million tourists a year.
Impresses its visitors throughout four seasons, yet with the arrival of spring, almond and apricot trees burst out into blossom all over Cappadocia.
Tourists who visit chimney rocks also ride camels, horses and ATV quad bikes.
In Cappadocia, one of the most popular tourism destinations in Turkey, hot-air ballooning and trekking are the most popular activities to do in the region.
Sedimentary rocks formed in lakes and streams and ignimbrite deposits that erupted from ancient volcanoes approximately 9 to 3 million years ago, underlie the Cappadocia region.
The rocks of Cappadocia near Goreme eroded into hundreds of pillars and minaret-like forms. People of the villages at the heart of the Cappadocia region carved out houses, churches and monasteries from the soft rocks of volcanic deposits. Goreme became a monastic centre in 300-1200 AD.Last Mod: 14 Mart 2013, 16:19
