📷 Tour Itinerary :
You will get to stretch your legs on a casual walk through the Meskendir Valley. The valley houses a small church that has a ceiling that has been carved out into a cross formation that is adorned in geometric red frescos. After visiting the church and having a taste of history enjoy the small stroll through the valley that is a cool escape from the dry landscape surrounding you.
Rose Valley is located behind the town of Urgup, but what makes it so interesting to most visitors and locals alike are all the walking tracks within the valley that link up all nearby villages and small settlements. There are scattered vineyards and gardens throughout the valley and it is always possible to see the locals still working who will give you a taste of their products, should you be lucky enough to spot them!
The valley gets its name - Red Valley - from the layers and layers of different coloured rock formations that give it a predominantly red colour. The valley is scattered with many walking tracks that link up to many villages and even along to the Rose Valley. The Red Valley is beautiful to wander through, where you may feel like you have the place to yourself, but also beautiful to capture from a viewpoint to appreciate the beautiful colour of these unusual rock layers.
Cavusin Village is a labyrinth of rock houses scattered into the rock formations that make up the town. It is one of the oldest dwellings within Cappadocia and today you will visit the village to admire the amazing feat of how the locals have dug into these rocks to create their own homes, some of which date back several centuries. The village is also famous for housing the Church of John the Baptist which dates back to the 5th Century.
The Christians who populated this area created these amazing underground cities when they were fleeing persecution back in the 14th Century. Some of the underground cities date back further than this and all hold an amazing moment of time from our ancient past. Be amazed at the architecture and the structure of these dwellings, which include many levels that separated the house dwellings from schools, cellars and even animal stables. Your tour guide will walk you through to show you how these people lived back in these ancient times of trying to flee and hide from persecution. You will be amazed at what you see.
Pigeon Valley is an area of Cappadocia that the local farmers have created over the years. Local farmers used to farm pigeon manure as they realized it was a rich resource of fertilizer for their crops and soil. So all these pigeon houses have been carved into the rock faces over the centuries. You make the stop to enjoy the view over the valley and the Cappadocia region.
Uchisar Castle Panorama
In the centre of Uchisar is one of the largest rock formations in Cappadocia, known as the Castle of Uchisar. It is the highest point over Cappadocia, which allows amazing views over the whole region and even as far as the Erciyes Mountains. It is the perfect spot to offer you all the best views over this amazing landscape of Cappadocia; it is a view that you will never forget.
When you arrive at Love Valley you will see clearly why it gets its name. The rock formations here are phallic like, giving the valley the name of love. These formations have been formed over the centuries by the natural erosion of volcanic rock. The valley is an especially unusual landscape of Cappadocia with the area being made up of cones, pillars, pinnacles, mushrooms, and the well-known fairy chimneys.
