It really is one of the most beautifull landscapes in the world. The valleys are very fertile, full of vegetables and fruits. As it is quite easy to dig holes into the tuff rock, people are doing it for thousands of years. There are dozens of underground cities and the traditional houses have a stone front and many underground rooms. Monks have built hundreds of chapels and churches. Some of them still carry their historic paintings. Step by step I will publish more from this part of the world.

It was one location of Stars Wars in fact :). I remember when i went flying with the ballon, we wake up at 6.15 for the journey to see the sunrise.

When i went the we had 45Cº tempeture, i was so tired that i had to stop for while. We rent a motorbike and it was fantastic. For sure we would come back again. :).

Congrats for the panos Heiner and thanks for sharing them with us.
