Bizarre tuff formations, valleys with cave dwellings and underground cities

Travelogue Cappadocia with 28 photos
Huge volcanic eruptions, followed by millions of years of erosion made Cappadocia into a unique, freakish landscape with gorges and strange rock formations. Since prehistoric times people carved cave dwelling in the soft tuff. This made complete rock walls look like Swiss cheese. There even are underground cities where the population hid when East and West were fighting once again. All of this together makes Cappadocia a unique travel destination. 28 photos.
