Overview

Uncover the ancient Cappadocia during this full-day tour! Hiking through spectacular Red Valley, exploring the colourful and breath-taking fairy chimneys and the structures left centuries ago by the village’s former Greek inhabitants, gazing over the cliff-carved birdhouses of Pigeon Valley and touring over the subterranean network of Kaymakli Underground City, i.e. Cappadocia Valley Hiking and Underground City Tour, is a must-do activity for Cappadocia travellers.

The tour starts with your pick-up from the hotel in the morning and continues to our first stop, Red Valley, a stunning area of red, rose, yellow, orange- and multi-colored rock cones, peaks and cliffs. Immerse yourself in the local flora and fauna in the Red Valley! Your 4 km hike with an informative guide along the breath-taking Red Valley, orchards and some cave houses will end at the deserted old Greek villageCavusin where you will see famous rock-cut ancient churches, castle and cave dwellings. You will walk up the hill to visit rock-cut churches and on your way learn about the history of caves and shelters and the people who once called them home, and why they left centuries ago.

Then, you will stop at a nice local restaurant for a delicious lunch (included in the price). From here your way is to Kaymakli (Enegup in Greek) Underground City, built under the hill known as the Citadel of Kaymakli. Kaymakli Underground City is one of the best preserved of its kind in Cappadocia. It was opened to visitors in 1964 and consists of 8 levels (only 4 are open). Heading towards underground will surprise you with it's around nearly one hundred tunnels. The inhabitants of the region still use the most convenient pasts on the tunnel they access through their courtyards as cellars, storage areas and stables.

You will then pass through Pigeon Valley where you will see amazing examples of pale pink and cream rock formations, dotted with caves and the pigeon houses that give the valley its name.

End your day with a stop at the Ortahisar Rock Castle, the biggest fairy chimney of Cappadocia. At the outskirts of the castle, there are available the samples of the civil architecture characteristic to Cappadocia. The overview is magnificent. These ancient valley cave homes are looking like a truly fairy tale town with a huge rock towering over it.
