THE ITINERARY

After meeting your guide you will first do some light trekking through some valleys where you will see amazing rock formations, churches and dove-cotes. We will then visit Pasabag which is famous for triple headed fairy chimneys. Then you will drive to Goreme Open Air Museum. This museum has the finest collection of rock hewn churches from the Byzantine Era. All these churches have the finest frescoes from the post iconoclastic period 10th and 11th century, outside of Europe.

Then you will drive to Kaymakli Underground City. So far they have discovered more than 36 underground cities in the region and this is the largest with its 9 levels cleared and open to adventurous travellers. Legend has it that these, and yet undiscovered underground cities stretch all the way across Cappadocia to Kayseri. Used initially as storage for animals and crops during winter they were developed as shelter for the inhabitants to remain safe during times of war and persecution. After visiting the underground city you will drive to Uchisar which was used as a watch tower and citadel by the people of Cappadocia.

After taking some more panoramic photo stops along the way,  you will drive back to the hotel.
