It is hard to believe that these formations were used for dwellings. They are all located near the other sites in Cappadocia.

I was quite awestruck when I visited these cave dwellings. How amazing the nature has been here, and how wonderfully the humans have capitalised on that. The whole effect left me speechless. Must visit place.

Getting here at sunset is great and getting to the top is easy. It can be cold even in summertime because of the wind

Imagine people living in the caves and going about their daily business and then living in fear of their lives. The underground caves and city is an amazing complex series of tunnels, traps and places of worship. Genius!
