    This was also the land of the Hittites.The name was derived from Katpatuka, land of the beautiful horses, in Hittite language. It was here that different cultures came into contact with each other. The origins can be traced to the Tertiary period some 50million years ago.Erosion have shaped the incredible and unique Cappadocian moon landscape. For hundreds of years men have dug into the soft but firm tuff to create dwellings, monasteries, churches and underground cities. The importance of the area came from the first Christian communities appeared in Cappadocia consequently this place became a melting pot for variety of ethnic groups,. Invasions first from Turkmenistan and Mongolia and then from Seljuks and Ottomans put an end to the movement. There are many places to "must see" in Cappadocia like; Fairy Chimneys, Göreme Valley National Park and rock churches, underground cities of Kaymakli, Derinkuyu or Ozkonak, Zelve Valley, Avanos with its pottery and carpets, Uçhisar rock fortress, Ürgüp, Ihlara valley, Soganli, Sinasos and Hacibektas.

    You never know what you'll come across on a hike in Cappadocia. We stumbled into a cave church in the middle of nowhere, and found a very surprised donkey hanging out in there. I felt he needed to be immortalized on film.
