Live in caves, walk along picturesque valleys, see ancient cave churches and monasteries, put out on ATVs, fly in a hot air balloon, try a kebab from a clay pot and, of course, make your own splendid selfies against the background of incredible landscapes of Cappadocia.
2. Nemut Mountain
Nemrut Mountain is one of the most amazing sights of Turkey, the whole national park on the mountain, which attracts tourists and locals with its sanctuary. The mountain is also famous for its charming and picturesque sunrises and sunsets. It is a pity that few people get to it, because it is located in the East of the country, in the province of Adyaman, far from major tourist cities, far from the sea and resorts.
Pamukkale, translated as a "cotton fortress", is called the business card of Turkey. It is a unique natural phenomenon in the form of huge limestone walls with ledges similar to ice blocks. Actually, it has nothing to do with Pamukkale ice. White formations with large bowls are a cascade of terraced pools filled with springs of different chemical composition and temperature with water from 30ºC to 100ºC, which has healing and rejuvenating effect. There are legends that Cleopatra's beauty and youth were preserved thanks to bathing in local springs.
Each pool has a tablet that informs about the temperature and water composition. Local thermal water cures a large list of diseases. Swimming in sulfur baths is effective for skin diseases, water of "multicolored" waterfalls, is designed to prevent diseases of joints and bones. In the dark time, Pamukkale's pools are illuminated, so you may take baths here round the clock.

Lavender blooms from late June to late July.
