Situated in Turkey’s Central Anatolia region, Cappadocia is a land of surreal landscapes, rock formations and natural wonders. Tourists come from all over the world to experience the fairy chimneys and unique historical and cultural heritage of this UNESCO World Heritage Listed region that includes the Göreme National Park. While erosion forces were responsible for creating this amazing landscape, they are a constant threat to its survival as they continually sculpt and recreate Cappadocia’s rock formations.
