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

In Cappadocia it is amazing it is as if you are walking in a fairy tale. Chimneys, historic cities, caves are really a one time experience.

Nice view from the bottom and the top from one side of the hill. However, the hill has no smooth walking path or steps. It is easy to get uphill but coming down may be a little difficult,

There are many unique rock formation to see. Schedule a little more time to climb to the top of the hills. The view is worthwhile especially during sunset. A recommendable place to see.
