Each fairy chimney is several times the length of human height.

  1. Red Valley: The stones and rocks here are shorter than the others in the area and have a cut structure. The harsh waters of the rains in the region eroded these rocks over time. The wind blowing hard has caused these rocks to sharpen from time to time. The view of the valley is awe-inspiring at sunrise and sunset. Photographing from a point overlooking the area a little overhead can make a beautiful view immortal.
  2. Rose Valley: About 5 kilometers from the Red Valley, a perfect valley will be waiting for you. Rose Valley fascinates people who visit Cappadocia with its many features.

    This was our first time visit to Turkey and one of the best legs of our long holiday. Absolutely loved Istanbul, Pamukkale, and Cappadocia, beautiful and felt safe, especially traveling as two alone females. It was brilliant service and a very enjoyable holiday. Definitely, we will go back again. The trip was smooth, with good hotels and seamless transits. All of these were made possible by the helpful suggestions and very prompt service provided by Mr Zenginbas. Also, a special thanks to the local guides provided at the different destinations. Highly recommend this company and Mr Zenginbas! Thanks again 🙂
