The Amazing Volcanic Landscapes of Cappadocia

Türkiye - Sept 04 - 09 2022
Cappadocia is a place that I've wanted to visit for years. As part of a partnership with Exodus Travels, a bunch of their contest winners got to spend a few days with me in Türkiye, including Istanbul & Cappadocia. Ancient volcanic activity has shaped the landscape here in such a way that It looks like it belongs in a fantasy novel.
 
The most striking features are the "Fairy Chimneys", ancient volcanic eruptions blanketed the region in thick ash, which later solidified into a soft rock called ‘tuff’. When the natural forces of wind and water (erosion) did their work, only the harder elements were left behind to form the fairy chimneys that can be seen today, stretching as far as 130 feet into the sky.
 
I had the great pleasure of being able to view this incredible landscape from above on an early morning hot air balloon ride. An experience not to be missed!
