Cappadocia 3 Days Tour From Alanya
In an extraordinary meeting of nature’s artistic splendor and humankind’s resourcefulness, Cappadocia is one of those rare places that must be experienced at least once in a lifetime. With soaring rock formations, uniquely-rippled landscapes, splendid walking trails, mysterious underground cities and rock-cut churches, Cappadocia is the must-see destination in Turkey.
Set deep in the heart of central Anatolia, the magical region is underlain by sedimentary rocks formed in lakes and streams and by ignimbrite deposits that erupted from ancient volcanoes approximately 3 to 9 million years ago.
This tour will bring you to the caravanserai built on the ancient trade routes as well as to the underground city of Saratli Kirkgöz. Spend a day exploring the rock houses at Uchisar castle and pigeon valley, which is full of dovecotes. See Cavusin Village rock houses and rock church and pay a visit to an onyx workshop and handicraft carpet production centre.
In this tour you will also see the places where some of the most famous Hollywood movies were shot. Cappadocia has hosted hundreds of movie scenes for Hollywood thanks to its unique plateau facilities. With 193 movies having been shot in Cappadocia in the last 40 years, these include famous ones like Nicolas Cage’s Ghost Rider 2, Noah, L’empire des Loups and Star Wars.
Devent Valley (Imagination Valley) where a magic wand touched a piece of land and turned it into a dreamy picture while this region was on the making. Each fairy chimney looks as if once flesh and bone faces turned into stone figures and you can not help but lose sense of time scanning through them for a familiar face.
Zelve Valley where the movie Ghost Rider 2 was filmed. Once there, you will feel you are in the movie set yourself! Zelve Valley is where the oldest and the longest settlements took place in the region. It is also known as the place Christianity started to spread. Many monasteries, churches and old settlements can be found in Zelve.
Uchisar Castle where L’empire des Loups was filmed. Being the highest point of the region, Uchisar Castle overlooks the Hasan and Argeus; today’s inactive volcanic mountains, the originator of the unique shapes of Cappadocia

3 Days Cappadocia Tour From Alanya
Thousands of years ago a group of ancient volcanoes, Mount Erciyes, Mount Hasan and Mount Melendiz, spewed out layer upon layer of thick tuff which blanketed the countryside for miles around. Over the centuries the wind and rain worked their magic on the soft rock, carving out spectacular gorges and leaving behind the dramatic pinnacles of rock – the ‘fairy chimneys’ – that have created the Cappadocian moonscape.
This is a wonderful trip with full of beautiful scenery and rich in history and culture which you will always remember for the rest of your life.
