Firstly we will visit the Red Valley (Kizilcukur), presenting an opportunity to hike through orchards and vineyards, between fairy chimneys and rock-carved houses. This was also used by Christians at the end of 5th centuries, so you are going to explore the cave dwelling used by them and visit old churches too. Continue to walk to the Rose Valley. Afterward, visit the old Christian Village of Cavusin. It was exactly settled like a big town where you are going to see many cave rooms used as living rooms, sleeping rooms, kitchens, wineries, etc.
All of them are waiting for you to be explored. We will have a stop for a lunch at the local restaurant. After the lunch, we proceed to Esentepe, where you will have the best view in the Cappadocia area. You are going to have a break on that hill, you’ll see all the marvelous looking valleys with different shapes. Our next stop will be the Underground City, which is probably the most attracting place to see in the area that you should not miss. It is the 2nd largest one in the area with its 4 levels and 40 meters depth. There are almost 40 underground cities like this in the region. They were used first by Hittites civilization and later by Christians as a shelter in the war times. They carved lots of rooms all connected with tunnels. The day tour continues with visiting Catalkaya, where you will see the most famous fairy chimneys in Cappadocia region. Our last stop is the Hospital Monastery (Ortahisar), which is the first place in the area used as hospital and health center by Christians.
