Highlights: Uçhisar Castle, Göreme Open Air Museum, Paşabağları (Munks Valley), Devrent Valley, Avanos (pottery), Love Valley
Start the day with a hike along the Red and Rose Valley, the most breathtakingly and mysteriously beautiful valleys in the region. The valleys, with their fabulous volcanic rock formations, are in the heart of Cappadocia but well away from the mainstream tourist haunts. Your hike will end in Cavusin Cave Village, where we will see a rock castle and troglodyte dwellings where people lived until the 20th century.
After lunch in a local restaurant descend towards the centre of the earth, with a trip to the Underground City of Kaymakli, one of the largest and deepest of Cappadocia’s many such settlements. This city is approximately 40m deep and contains all the usual rooms found in an underground city (stables, cellars, storage rooms, refectories, churches, wineries etc.) You will then take a visit to the Pigeon Valley where you will have a spectacular view of dovecotes, old abandoned cave homes and old Greek houses of Uchisar and for our last stop we will visit Ortshisar Castle the biggest mass of fairy chimneys in Cappadocia.
