• Explore Turkey's UNESCO site in Cappadocia

    2011-12-29

    There are some incredible wonders of the world that are just waiting to be explored by adventurous travelers on their next getaway abroad. One of these locations is Goreme National Park in Cappadocia, Turkey, which boasts some amazing rock towers that are unlike anything else on the planet.

    The sand-colored rock formations in Cappadocia have all been formed by thousands of years of erosion, creating a unique landscape of cone-shaped structures. This region has been honored as a UNESCO World Heritage site, reports the organization's website, and it welcomes guests to explore the surrounding forests and the excavated ancient residential sites, some dating back to the 4th century.

    Special tours will take guests inside these formations, where there is an intricate cavern network that indigenous peoples once lived and in made their home. It was popular among those who led a religious life as well, as there are remains of churches and monasteries from the Byzantine era.

    According to smarter travel, there are wonderful hiking trails in and around the area that allow travelers go get some great views of the natural wonders. Those who wish to stay in the park can do so at the resident spa and hotel that lies just outside the caves and rocks.
