The first stop on your 8-hour tour is the Göreme Open Air Museum, which resembles a vast monastic complex. It boasts the finest of Cappadocia’s rock-cut churches.
The magnificent landscape was formed by solidified lava streams during the Neocene period. Thousands of years of erosion have created a lunar-like landscape.
Enjoy a walk through the village of Esentepe to see the natural fairy chimney formations. Visit the Pasabag Valley and see remarkable earth pillars in the middle of a vineyard.
Explore the Devrent Valley, which looks like a rock-formed zoo. Marvel at snakes, camels, seals, and dolphins and whatever else your mind chooses to make of the twisting, curving rocks.
