Cappadocia & Taurus Mountains Trekking Tour

This 12 days trek starts from the fantastically eroded landscapes of Cappadocia – a unique hiking experience in the land of “Beautiful Horses”. There will be short walks here exploring the ancient troglodyte dwellings, rock churches and fairy chimneys. We then embark on an adventurous trek through the stunningly beautiful Taurus Mountains. The trek leads from high mountain pastures occupied by nomadic families in summer, to magnificent soaring peaks and deserted mountain lakes. This tour is ideal for those who enjoy camping and walking.
