The Esentepe will give you a full panoramic view over the whole area, whilst Pasabag shows off the 3 headed fairy chimney that is famous to the area.
Absorb yourself in the local history with a visit to the Open Air Museum where you can see where early Christian settlements took up refuge in times of persecution. View the amazing frescos that they left behind in the cave like dwellings. You will also visit Avanos, a town famous for its pottery production that dates back to 3000 B.C. You will also visit the Dervent Valley that is well known for its moonlike landscape and one more amazing view at the Three Beauties, which takes in the town of Urgup.

Today you have the option to start the day with a Hot Air Balloon ride. Starting before sunrise you will have time to join in this optional activity before the day even starts. Cappadocia is one of the most famous landscapes in the world, so what better way than to really enjoy it, then by air. Join the many others in watching the sunrise over this famous landscape. You will be transferred back to your accommodation around 07:00am/7:30 am.
The rest of day will start at 09:30am to go visit all the sights left to see on the South Cappadocia Tour. This day takes in the rest of this amazing area that you didn’t get to visit the day before. Today you will see a whole new area of beautiful landscapes as well as be absorbed in the historical importance of Cappadocia. You will get to see some of the most beautiful valleys in Cappadocia when visiting Rose Valley, famous for the colours of the rock formations. Pigeon Valley to see all the pigeon homes that the farmers have made over the years for the fertilization of their soil. And everyone enjoys the view over Love Valley to have a little giggle at the phallic shaped rocks that give it its name. Red Valley is also one to explore to see the many hidden paths that all lead onto the amazing sights of Cappadocia and its surrounding towns and settlements.
You will also get to visit one of the Underground Cities that are famous in Cappadocia. Visit this underground wonder to see how these Christians made this their home in times of persecution. It is fascinating as you wander through the levels of these well planned Cities that consist of not only homes, but also schools, meeting halls and wine cellars. You will get to stretch your legs again in the wide open spaces of Meskendir Valley. Here you will undertake a small 4km trek at your own pace. Wander down through the valley and along the river to enjoy some different scenery that the area has to offer. There is also a chance to visit the most ancient settlement in the area when we stop at Cavusin Valley, that dates back to 5th Century B.C and another beautiful panorama view at Uchisar Castle – one of the most stand out landmarks of Cappadocia.
