Surrounded by the fairy chimneys, underground cities and the majestic ruins of ancient civilizations, the Cappadocia Hotel is located in the neighbourhood of Esbelli overlooking Ürgüp. Having hosted many different civilizations for thousands of years, Ürgüp is one of the first settlement zones and most important towns of Cappadocia which is also known as the Land of Beautiful Horses. While its settlement history dates back to the Palaeolithic age, Cappadocia is known as the place where Christianity was first born. Having been one of the outstanding points of intersection of the Silk Road in the past, Cappadocia is now a place where nature communes with history. While having spectacular samples of interesting rock formations, known as 'fairy chimneys' formed by the rain and wind erosions of tuffs and lavas of Mount Erciyes, Mount Hassan and Mount Güllü, Cappadocia is also the home of the greatest outdoor museum of the world, namely Göreme Open-air Museum. Due to its natural and cultural diversity, Cappadocia has been on the UNESCO World Natural & Cultural Heritage List since 1985. You can enjoy many activities such as hot-air balloon tours, trekking, bike-riding, and horse-riding here.

Nature really let its creative juices flow here, creating a concentration of mindboggling shapes resembling everything from a camel to Napoleon. Tack on to one of the tour groups to hear some of the more incredulous claims, or let your own imagination run free and see what shapes you see yourself.
Pasabag (Monks Valley) is just another unique part of Cappadocia - not to be missed. In this valley, you can see many different types of fairy chimneys: multi-bodied, multi-headed, elongated, asparagus shaped, phallic shaped, cone shaped, pedestal shaped and Japanese eryngii (エリンギ) mushroom shaped ones.
Perhaps the most accessible of all the valleys, due to its proximity to the central town of Goreme, Pigeon Valley is the best place to start exploring the region. The trail goes right through the valley, with great views of the many dovecotes that dot the cliff walls and fairy chimneys around. The best way to access the trail is from Uchisar, from where a short 3km trail will take you through the valley to Goreme.
Unbelievably, many were converted into homes and churches over the past millennia and meanwhile, below them, underground cities were also dug out - some of the largest in the world - by Christians escaping religious persecution which they say could hold up to 10,000 people each.Details
