We walk down to the tahtali, one of most typical examples of rock-carved housing in Cappadocia. Millions of years ago tuff, a soft stone comprised of lava, ash and mud has accumulated on the landscape's surfaces as a result of local volcanic activity. The erosion since, has made this landscape appear to be unnatural work; rock formations out of a fantasy land rise up before you at every turn and entice you to look longer and wonder at their creation Then through small valleys and plateau's we go down to the valley of Uzengi bordered with a high cliff of white tuff where there are thousands of pigeon houses. Our lunch break will be on the way as a picnic. Our pathway takes us into the Pancarlik valley. It is a fantastic landscape, a tumble of waves with pastels colours, patchwork of vineyards and small gardens in terraces. We are in front of sarica and kepez churches, carved in the heart a fairy chimneys. They are interesting for their architecture. Dinner and overnight at pension in Cappadocia.

    Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner Included After breakfast, we will take a short drive to the beginning of Avcilar valley. In the heart of Cappadocia, this is a breathtakingly beautiful valley, with poplars, fruit trees and gardens between two walls of coloured tuff. We follow all the meanders; the colours change quickly, the white dominate, the abandoned gardens fall down in this strange land. We then continue into the Kiliclar valley. Like mushrooms, fairy-chimneys are standing up and we walk through them. Simple rock-cut churches, cones and unusual rock formations are the highlights of this part of the trek. Picnic will be served for lunch. Dinner and overnight at pension in Cappadocia.

Afterward we continue onto kizilcukur (red valley), this valley is certainly the most beautiful in Cappadocia with its formations and red colours: during millions years ago, rain and wind worked together to erode the soft volcanic rock; you will see here that the result is really fairy. Small valleys, cones, peaks and fairy chimneys alternate harmoniously on our way.
