Soganli Valley: The Hybrid of Old Times and Nature
We will start our day by visiting one of the most striking and nurturing natural areas of south Cappadocia. Being known as Soganli Valley, this large place does not only contain the contrast of lively forests and dead-looking rocks, it also holds a deep history.
Here, the high rock blocks are decorated with carved, nest-looking rock pieces. Because of its look, this valley is also known as the minimal version of the entire Cappadocia. Yet, its beauty and popularity are not minimal at all.
During our walk in there, we will visit rock-carved chapels and churches that reflect the Roman era. Our guide will enlighten you about their importance and stories, too.
Kaymakli Underground City: The Depths of the Ground
One of the other important stops of this tour is Kaymakli Underground City, which dates back to 7th-8th centuries. Even if it had firstly been used by Phrygians, Indo-European people, successively, it was also used by Greeks, Romans, Christians and Byzantines. According to the claims, even in Ottoman Empire era, it was used as refuges.
This cave-city has very wide boundaries: Archeologists think that the entire city could gather approximately 3500 people. Also, you will be able to see a church, numerous storage places, wineries and kitchen, ventilation shaft and a lot of corridors, gates, caves etc.
In other words, you will want to get lost in there!
Cappadocia Blue Tour will also take you to one of the best excavated structures in Cappadocia, which is known as Keslik Monastery. The monastery was made of volcanic tuffs, in the Byzantine era. Its unique design, atmosphere and frescos in orange and yellow colors will make you completely amazed.

And also, instead of visiting only one more structure afterwards, we will visit an impressive village that all of its buildings are made of rocks. Simply, the dominant color in there is beige and its tones, which come from the ancient rock-carved caves or usual buildings. Anyways, the amazing mixture will make you feel you that you are mixing to its streets.
There are nearly 93 100-year-old houses and approximately 30 churches and chapels to see. Because of its historical and architectural wealth, this village has been “a touristic center” since 1981. Of course, while you are learning more thanks to our guide, you will understand its significance more.
