10 million years ago, volcanoes were actively erupting in this place. The tuf bases were filled with magma, which froze and turned into solid monoliths. Nature did a good job on them. Wind and water gradually destroyed volcanic rocks, turning them into stone pillars. They, along with huge multicolored rocks served as a home and shelter for people seeking salvation from their persecutors.
Cappadocia is the largest open-air geological museum
In our tour of Cappadocia from Marmaris you can take part in the balloon parade. Officially, the parade is held every few years, for from one week to several. It is wrong to assume that thousands of people aspire to get into the "country of beautiful horses" only for the sake of the sight of balloons against the sky. This is a real celebration of music, dance and fun. Exhibitions of folk craft, workshops, performances of creative groups - a special atmosphere, for which travelers come.
However, at any other time you can start a new day in a basket of bright, huge ball hovering at an altitude of 1000 meters, or just standing on the top of the cliff to admire this spectacular spectacle, and after visiting the 60-meter fortress of Uchchisar, located at an altitude of 1400 meters, to visit the famous valleys of monks, Roses, Love, Red, Ikhlar and others. You will see a multi-tiered underground city, founded in the 2nd millennium BC Visit Gyerem, see the famous program "Turkish Night", taste local wines and more.
