“Paved but still beautiful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014

I mean...just check out those pictures! This is some gorgeous scenery! Had a blast wandering around here. It's definitely touristy (camels for hire, ice cream vendors, etc.) but if you get lucky and time a visit between the tour buses, you'll get some great photo ops.

“A must-see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2014

This is the reason one visits Cappadocia. Simply fantastic out-of-this-world kind of place that we should at least see once in our lifetimes. Great for photography when the sun is out with blue skies but the winter scenes here with snow look great too. Bus-loads come here but there is plenty of space for everyone to wander around unless you choose to join the crowds at the little caves or carved-out rooms. There are shops; we paid a lira each to use the toilet at a shop across the road.

“nice place to see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2014

you should definetely visit Pasabag and see the old house in rocks. It's impressive. Pasabag is one of the most popular place to see around. don't go hungry there though, it's quite crowded and difficult to have something to eat due to queue

“Great for Photography”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2014

If you are a keen photographer, a visit to the Pasabag Valley is well worth the time. We visited 4 scenic locations within 2-3 hours of each other with each stop providing a totally different perception of the famous "fairy chimneys". For the best photography and to give your photographs more depth, visit early in the morning or late in the evening. You will need to spend 30 to 45 minutes at each stop.

This is among the many landscapes dotting Cappadocia that you come for. Probably the best! My first impression was this cannot be natural. Upon closer look at the top of each 'mushroom', you realize how perfectly each structure has been circumcised to reveal the mushroom top. It just seems too perfect to be natural. But I doubt UNESCO would have listed it if it wasn't. So, let us assume it is a natural wonder, and enjoy it. The structures are spread over quite an area, and the mushrooms seem to sprout in clusters. Also, the view of the same mushroom changes from each direction and the sunlight. It is an easy walk all around, though I was disappointed to see no restrictions on people climbing up and down the structures, sliding down etc. It is both dangerous and damaging to the environment. Sadly, there are no public toilets. Some of the cafes have dirty WCs that have no water, and they charge 1 lira for the privilege.
