I flew all the way to Cappadocia to take a hot-air balloon ride, but after seeing the otherworldly
landscape from the sky, I was eager to see the view from ground level as well. The reddish hues of the rock formations reminded me of the Grand Canyon, while the strange features formed by years of erosion were like nothing else I’d ever seen.I headed out to explore Rose and Red Valleys for a day of hiking with Middle Earth Travel. Beyond just several hours of active hiking through beautiful scenery, my guide shared anecdotes about the region and showed me ancient cave churches that were far better preserved and absolutely empty compared to Goreme Open Air Museum. Even with a storm looming in the background that taunted us most of the morning, it was still a gorgeous way to explore the area.
