Took a flight from Istanbul to Kayseri and an hours drive to Cappadocia. I had seen pictures of this unearthly place before and was surreal just being there. No time for rest, we joined our tour group on a trek through Rose Valley. Here are some snaps, tried my very best not to fall in the shallow pools of mud or trip over the tiny brown sandy rocks. Probably not the best of pictures since we had to keep up with the group….The tiny window like carvings into the rocks are pigeon houses made by the ancient settlers of the area. These landforms look like a scene out of Star wars or an 80s sci-fi movie! Nevertheless, an enchanting trail in this foreign land.
