Description

Experience the majestic towering rock formations of the Cappadocia region as you make your way through the Devrent Imagination Valley, check out the mystical Uchisar Rock Castle, walk past the iconic fairy castles, and visit the Goreme Open Air Museum.

After being picked up at your hotel, your full-day tour begins in the Devrent Imagination Valley, which is famous for its unusual rock formations that jut out from the ground in strange shapes. Many claim that these rocks look like animals, so see if you can spot the camel, snake, seal, and dolphin that are said to be found here.

Next, head to Pasabag (Monk’s Valley) to see mushroom shaped fairy chimneys with multiple stems and caps, many of which are hoisting up teetering rocks on their tops that look as if they might fall at any instant. Drive to Avanos, a small town divided in 2 by the longest river in Turkey, the Kizilirmak. Here you can browse the many tile and pottery workshops.

After lunch in a local restaurant, make your way to the Goreme Open Air Museum where you witness well-preserved, rock-cut churches with frescoes dating back to the 10th century, and fine examples of beautiful Byzantine art.

Your day ends with a visit to Uchisar Rock Castle, the highest peak in the region which was once used as a fortress by the Roman and Byzantine armies. This giant rock that juts high into the sky has been cut into, allowing you to walk through caves and porticos that were carved into its enormous façade.
