Ayami in カッパドキア!

トルコ、カッパドキアより!世界複合遺産にも登録されているこのエリアでは、火山活動が生んだ世にも珍しい奇岩群と、そこに隠れ住んだキリスト教徒たちの、洞窟住居や地下都市の痕跡を見ることができます。私は観光の拠点として多くの観光客で賑わうギョレメに一週間ほど滞在いたしました。街自体がこの奇岩帯の中にあるので、ホテルにいながらでも素晴らしい景色が楽しめるのですが(ちなみに多くの宿泊施設が洞窟をもとにしています!)、ちょっとハイキングに出かければ、さらなる絶景に出会えます!気球は貧乏バックパッカーの私には高すぎたので乗りませんでしたが(笑)、ハイキングだけでも充分楽しめちゃいます!

From Cappadocia, the world renowned UNESCO World Heritage Site of Turkey!
The area is famous for its remarkable rock formations made by volcanic activity, as well as cave dwellings and underground cities, which were mainly used by Christians fleeing religious persecution. I stayed for about a week in a small village called Goreme, the most popular town for tourists to explore the area. It’s located in the middle of this rocky area, so some of the accommodations are partially or fully built into the caves.  The view from the town is great, but if you go on a short hike, the scenery is even more breathtaking! Of course, you can take a hot air balloon ride, which Cappadocia is known for, but it was kind of expensive for me as a backpacker, so I didn’t.😅 Even so, I still had a lot of fun hiking around!
