Prekistolen picture is breathtaking! Is the trail hard and rocky climbing to get up to there?

Cappadocia is a historical region in Central Anatolia, largely in Nevşehir Province, in Turkey. In the time of Herodotus, the Cappadocians were reported as occupying the whole region from Mount Taurus to the vicinity of the Euxine

Its a 2 hours walk up if keeping up quite a pace. The hard part is that its pretty steep and stairs like with barely a flat part to ease on the legs.

Got any pictures to share of those hard parts?

Saw this in Suave's thread too. Is that the region of קפוטקיא mentioned in Gemarah?

It is really nice. Turkish people speak Turkish.

Just say 'tamam' which means 'okay' or pick up your head from the regular position to a little upward, while lifting the palm of your hand, which means 'no', and you will be fine.

It's mentioned a few times, don't remember anything in particular. It's usually brought as an example of a far away place I think...
