Cappadocia: Attractions and more...
The most popular attraction here is the Göreme National Park with the ‘fairy chimneys’—piles of volcanic stone and ash (tuffs) eroded by rain and wind to produce chimney-like structures. This area is a World Heritage Site. There are several rock-cut churches and underground settlements here.
A hot air balloon flight over Cappadocia is one of the best ways to revel in the magnificent natural beauty of this area. There is also facility for mountain climbing and mountain skiing at Erciyes Dagi, which is at a height of 3,916 m above sea level.
A trip to this city is incomplete without visiting the Hacibektas Museum, which also houses the tomb of Haci Bektas Veli, the leading proponent of the Alawi-bektasi sect of Islam.
The ‘chimney village’ hosts a Cappadocian Cuisine Food Festival every September. There is also the newly-introduced Hot Air Balloon Festival. Another popular event is the International Mountain Bike Festival in June.
