Exploring Cappadocia, the 'Land of Beautiful Horses', Goreme, Turkey (B)

Cappadocia, located in the Anatolia region of Turkey in Asia Minor, is one of the most unique and mysterious regions in the world.

Meaning 'the land of beautiful horses' in Old Persian, it attracts thousands of visitors every year due to its unique scenery, diverse culture and endless option for the most adventurous travellers. Here are some of the multiple activities and day trips that you can enjoy in this incredible region.

We selected Göreme as our base-camp. The main reason was its perfect location right in the middle of Cappadocia, with easy access to all other surrounding villages. Also, most buses arriving in Cappadocia will stop in Göreme. As we were travelling overnight from Pamukkale, this was the best option to avoid any further travel after a 10h bus ride. Göreme is also one of the liveliest villages in Cappadocia, with multiple options for restaurants and a great nightlife. 

In Cappadocia’s magical landscape of fairy chimneys, every visitor has to try the experience of sleeping in a cave hotel. This region is famous for its rock-cut houses, many of which have been converted into beautiful hotels to accommodate visitors from all corners of the world.  ......
