About Tour Programs
Cappadocia Region. The underground city of Derinkuyu is buried in mystery. No one knows when or why it was built, how many people it housed, or even how deep it really goes. Many theories about its history abound but no one really knows for sure.
No one really knows for sure but it’s estimated that up to 20,000 people lived in Derinkuyu at any given time. It contained churches, food stores, livestock stalls, wine cellars, schools, even commercial spaces. There’s a ventilation system to filter out smoke and an irrigation system that supplied drinking water from wells filled by an underground river. Places like this make you realize how remarkable human ingenuity is.
Next stop will be Ihlara Valley that Around 14 km long (8.5 miles) and 100 m deep (330 ft), Ihlara Valley is one of the most popular places in Cappadocia for hiking. We make our way down into the valley using 385 steps. The valley has four entrances in all. But we will use the second gate for the entrance where we will start hiking 3-4 km. This is the best part of Ihlara Canyon. What makes Ihlara Valley unique is the fact that its canyon is honeycombed with rock-cut dwellings and churches. We visited just one church today — Agacalti Kilise or “Church under the Tree”. A river runs through Ihlara Valley. The Melendiz River cuts through the valley making for a pleasant hike. Nice to hear the sound of the water while you walked. We will walk along the Melendiz River.
After hiking, we will give a break for lunch in Belisirma Village in a local restaurant nearby: Melendiz River. We will have a chance to local foods of Ihlara Canyon.
After lunch, we will get on our tour minibus and we will drive approximately 15 minutes from the middle of Ihlara Valley to Selime Village. Then, we will reach the Selime Monastery. A rock-cut monastery similar to the ones at Göreme Open Air Museum, Selime is notable for two things — its cathedral-sized church and Star Wars. Selime Monastery is the largest religious building in Cappadocia.
Apart from the church, the monastery also contains monks’ quarters, a huge kitchen, and a stable for mules. Also, Selime was part of the Silk Road trade route.
After Selime Monastery, we will drive back toward to Goreme Area approximately one and half hour. Then, we will stop local Onyx Workshop. We will see different gemstones and some jewellery. The last stop on today’s Green Tour — beautiful Pigeon Valley. A valley connecting Uchisar to Göreme, there are many pigeon houses here hence the name. As previously described, farmers used these pigeon houses to collect their droppings which are an excellent natural fertilizer.
Around 18:00, we will come back to your hotel.
Uçhisar is the best place to have a full view of all Cappadocia valleys the village. The panorama of the
surrounding area is lovely. You will see the Uchisar Castle and the surrounding ancient houses; the scenery is beautiful; the ancient houses are hollowed out into the rocks and form amazing shapes.
Göreme Open Air Museum is one of Turkey’s first UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Göreme Open Air Museum is the most visited site in Cappadocia. It boasts the best and most extensive collection of rock-cut churches, many of
which have been decorated with elaborate Byzantine ancient cave churches and impressive biblical frescoes. (wall or ceiling paintings). Dating back to the 10th century AD, they’re over a thousand years old.
After the Goreme Open Air Museum, we will go to Love Valley. Love is a universal word, after all, and there is nothing that could be considered remarkable in its resemblance to the female equivalent of these enormous formations in the area. Love Valley harbours and encompasses incredible sights from the canyons below the vineyards and orchards leading to gigantic fairy chimneys. We will go to lunch. You will have lunch in a local restaurant. You will have the chance to taste famous foods of Cappadocia. After lunch, we will go to Avanos. Avanos is a small cute town right next to the Kizil Irmak river.
This town is also known for its pottery workshops. Lots of places where you can try to do your own clay pot. We will visit one of the pottery workshops in Avanos. Then, we will go to Pashabag. After the eruption of Mount Erciyes about 2.6
million years ago, ash and lava formed soft rocks in the Cappadocia Region, covering a region of about 20,000 km2. The softer rock was eroded by wind and water, leaving the hard cap rock on top of pillars, forming the present-day fairy chimneys. You will see the best fairy chimneys of Cappadocia in Pasabag. Also known as Monks Valley, a chapel and hermitage dedicated to Saint Simeon was built into one of these fairy chimneys with three heads. Saint Simeon was a
Syriac ascetic who lived in seclusion for 37 years atop a pillar near Aleppo in Syria. Inspired by his example, the hermits of Cappadocia isolated themselves from the world by cutting into these fairy chimneys and creating rooms 10-15 meters aboveground.
Devrent Valley, also known as Imagination Valley, is a great place for practising your imagination. There are rock formations shaped liked camels, seals, lions, and whatever else you can imagine. What a great place to let your
imagination run wild! After the trip, we will take you to the airport.
