|The Phrygian Valley (Frig Vadisi) is as an area spread out between Eskisehir, Kutahya and Afyon, It is still relatively untouched, and offers spectacular Phrygian relics. |
There is a project called The Phrygian Way, one of the longest trekking trails in Turkey, was made for trekkers to enjoy the traces of Phrygian civilization and the natural beauties of the Phrygian valleys. The 506 km route has been signed to international standards. The Way has three starting points;1-Gordion (Ankara), 2-Seydiler (Afyonkarahisar) and 3-Yenice Çiftliği (Kütahya). The routes meet at Yazılıkaya (Eskişehir), the heart of Phrygi, after passing through the Phrygian Valleys.
Hüseyin Sarı's Phrygian Way guidebook details the 506km hiking trail which helped us a lot during our travel. We could only cover some parts of Route 2.
The photo was taken at Seydiler village. A lovely old couple welcomed us in their home for a tea break after our walk. Wish to see them again and complete the route.

Not Cappadocia?? It looks very similar. Amazing pink rocks. Really spectacular view. How nice to see you here.
