Ready to Rock? Sneak a “Peak” at Turkey’s Göreme Valley!

You’re looking at Turkey’s Göreme valley—a land abounding in local lore and “gorge”-eous views!

Ancient volcanoes once buried the region in igneous rock, which eons of wind and rain have carved, rounded, and shaped. The outcome? A magical land of caves, caverns, and canyons. And don’t forget about nature’s skyscrapers! The region’s rock towers can reach 100 feet—or more!
