Ethnological walk

(Approximately a 12 kilometers hike)

Enjoy an ” ethnological walk” highly specialized, allowing you to get a closer look to the lifestyle and traditions of the families and people of Central Cappadocia, visiting their homes and numerous buildings carved into the rocks, exploring many of the less known but no less spectacular valleys, as the Valley of the Doves, White Valley and other untouched areas of the central Anatolian plateau,  witnessing the daily life of local people.

Pigeon Valley: The traditional route of this valley extends about 4 kilometers from Üchisar to Göreme. In this tour you can enjoy amazing views, a splendid and almost surreal landscape, with tunnels and rooms carved into the rock, as if they were dovecotes.

White  Valley: Also known as Valley of Love, this amazing valley presents a spectacular and coveted landscape, perfect for a wonderful photo section, apart from the very peculiar fairy chimneys that rise in the area.
