The unearthly landmarks that dot the landscape provide such a surreal experience. Made up of solid rock, and carved by millions of years of erosion, “Fairy Chimneys” or “Hoodoos” surround you at every turn. Having this terrain blanketed in snow was an absolute treat, even if my pants did freeze solid while still on. I had such a memorable time trekking amongst these giants that can range anywhere from 2 to 45m high. Göreme (the town near by) is a gorgeous little village that lies at the bottom of a valley where these enormous chimneys concentrate. Here you can actually stay inside a chimney (which I did), and keep warm from the harsh winter outside.
