Wonderful valley with the mushroom heads. Definitely worth a visit! I went there with the red tour . Amazing views, plan in an hour or 1,5 hours to wander around and see everything

This is the best place to visit the fairy chimeneys that make cappadocia famous. Allow 1 hour at least, and 2 hours if you like to visit the caves and churches.

This is the place where you can see the fairy chimneys. You should follow the roadway to Zelve from Goreme to reach there. If you see any parked Bus, cars around Cappadocia region you should stop and visit that place. Because, parking cars nad busses is the sign of you will find interesting things. In Pasabag, you will enjoy walking... More

As a tourist from far far away, the view here was so unique. I enjoyed it so much.. the stone was huge,and we entered the holes in it. It was fun! There was also ice cream seller. I bought it for 4 lyras,more expensive then Mado. But it was ok.

It dwarfed me to be in the midst of these fairy chimneys. Just awesome wonders to behold and learn how it all came about - another work of nature at its greatest display. You have to really stay still to enjoy and savor it.

This is where you can see the fairy chimneys and their basalt tops . The hermits of Cappadocia distanced themselves by cutting rooms in tufa .Good spot to take pictures.

Very interesting place. The terrain is really amazing. Just a short and cheap bus ride from Urgup . You can also walk to Zelve Open Air Museum from here through lovely countryside.

Fairy chimneys appear throughout Cappadocia, but Pasabag features outstanding examples that are easily accessible. Though this was a stop for us on the red tour of the north, independent travelers should find Pasabag (also known as Monks Valley) easy to locate, close to Goreme, on the road to Zelve. Known as mushroom-shaped fairy chimneys, because of their caps' appearance, many... More

This is the place where St. Simeon (5th century) cme to live as a Hermitage in one of this pillars and There is also a Chapel carved on the rock with his name....marvelous natural... More
