Fairy Chimneys & Surreal Valleys

Cappadocia, Turkey

Spend the day exploring the remarkable sights of Cappadocia. Highlights include Pasabagi, known as 'Valley of the Monks', Valley of Zelve, also called 'Imagination Valley', Devrent, known as Pigeon Valley, and Uchisar Castle.

Surreal sights abound in Cappadocia. Wander around the picturesque fairy chimney valleys in Zelve Valley, explore Pigeon Valley, and examine the mushroom-shaped formations in Pasabagi. Stop at Devrent Valley with its animal-shaped fairy chimneys, guaranteed to amaze.

One of the highlights of the day is Uchisar Castle, located at the highest point in Cappadocia. It features many rooms hollowed out into the rock, connected to each other with stairs, tunnels and passages. At the entrances of the rooms, there are millstone doors, just like the ones in the underground settlements, used to control access to these places. Due to the erosion in areas of this multi-levelled castle, it is unfortunately not possible to reach all the rooms, but there is plenty of fun to be had explored those that are accessible.
