The Erhera Canyon is a hard-to-find oasis on the Greime volcanic ash plain. Steep cliffs, clear streams, and abundant green vegetation are no exceptions to the scenery. But there are countless cave churches on the cliffs of the canyon, which will never be found in China. However, due to various historical reasons, it is a pity that the exquisite frescoes on the church have been destroyed.
Visit the valley in hot summer. When we first entered the valley, the sun was hot and there was hardly any cool place. Slowly walking deep into the valley, gradually see the shade, and then the vegetation flourishes, suddenly bright, as if into a fantastic fairyland may be haunted by elves.
Coming out of the dungeon, we headed straight for the Ihlara Valley. Reference to LP is as follows - "The Erhera Canyon, formerly known as Peristrema, was one of Byzantine monks'favorite retreats, leaving behind many painted grotto churches. Hikers can follow the Melendiz Suyu stream. The stream flows from Selime's wide and shallow valley to the narrow valley of the village of Ehraze, totaling 16 kilometres. Because of the flourishing vegetation and the gentle voice of birds, it is unforgettable to wander by the stream in the beautiful valley. Our hiking trip didn't actually complete the canyon. It took us about 2 - 3 hours to walk one part of it, but we still felt that it was a pleasant and unforgettable journey. There was a downhill from the parking lot to the entrance of the canyon, and we were all shocked by the open canyon. I couldn't help comparing it with the Grand Canyon of Colorado, which was not as spectacular as the latter, but it was amazing enough.
It combines natural scenery with humanities and religions, and is a rare cultural and natural attraction. The best way to appreciate it is to walk through it. Although the shock here can not be compared with the Great Rift Valley of East Africa and the Grand Canyon of Colorado in the United States, it also has its own unique place. The Herah Canyon was one of the most popular places for Byzantine monks to live in seclusion, leaving behind many painted grotto churches. After 360 steep steps into the canyon, it flows along the melendizsuyu stream.
The huge flame of "Turkey Kapa's multiple landforms" sprayed out with a rolling heat wave and our full expectation, and the balloon had begun to rise slowly. The hot-air balloons scattered all over the sky seem to have entered the fairy tale world, and the magical Cappadocia with the rise and fall of the balloon, little by little, unfolds in front of us. The gullies are vertical and horizontal, the valleys are undulating, the stone pillars are standing, and the nature's ghost and axe are supernatural. At some point, you may really think, where is the Earth, it is clear that we are driving "cosmic flyball" to the moon to explore the mystery (grin)
The ihlara Canyon is a scenic spot along the Green Line in Cappadocia. It's still a little bit away from Gramey, which is usually included in green line tours. This scenic spot is actually very large and can cross the whole canyon. It takes at least 6 kilometers to walk. But usually it's the front part of the canyon. The scenery is quite good. There's no need to walk six kilometers. This is also a good natural landscape in Cappadocia, which is worth walking.
The most lunar-like place on Earth, Cappadochia, was formed by magma flowing for more than 2 million years after the eruption of volcanoes 6 million years ago. For example, mushroom forest, also known as immortal chimney, is composed of volcanic magma, while the black part of the forest top is composed of volcanic ash.
Cappadochia is a must-come scenic spot in Turkey. The most famous and necessary thing here is the hot-air balloon. Before sitting on the hot-air balloon, you have to sign a life-and-death status, which makes the atmosphere a little tense, but it really feels worthwhile after arriving in the sky.
Turkey's famous canyon, a large area, contains many unique shapes of rocks, showing the magic of nature.
