The Kapuzbasi Waterfalls in Aladaglar National Park located in the south of Cappadocia and east of Nigde, are among Turkey's most unusual: the seven waterfalls spurt right from a solid-rock cliff face. It's striking: a crease in the vertical cliff face. Above it, dry rock. Below it, a cascade of chilly white water. Over the ages, the water found its way through the porous limestone, ending at the cliff face, where it tumbles to a stream below.
At the base of the falls is an old, primitive grain mill, a low-roofed ramshackle structure set above a channel of racing water that turns the wheel. Inside, the village miller squats and scoops and sacks the flour that is milled from the grinding stones.
Upstream and downstream from the waterfalls a few kms are small villages with a few basic services. The lower village has several simple family-run restaurants where we dine on fresh grilled fish and local vegetables.
