Zelve ruins, which is on the Göreme-Avanos highway after Paşabağları and consists of 3 separate valleys, is the place where fairy chimneys are most concentrated. It has been one of the important settlements and religious centers of Christians until the 13th century. Balıklı, Üzümlü, and Geyikli churches are the most important churches of the valley and belong to the pre-iconoclastic period. In the valley, which was used as a settlement until 1952, there are structures such as monasteries, churches, mills, mosques, and passage tunnels.

Pasabag Valley Excursion

We start our Pasabag tour by parking a car where there are souvenir shops. The valley is a very large area with mushroom-capped fairy chimneys, in the area. While passing through the valley of the priests, a pile looks like a pile of rocks in various shapes, but as soon as you step into the valley, you encounter the gendarmerie using one of the old caves and the tourists competing with the gendarme to take pictures.

You can see the large and small mushroom-shaped fairy chimneys, living spaces carved from the rocks, churches, and tourists visiting the Pasabag valley. Did the construction of more churches than living quarters throughout Cappadocia impose a mission of heaven here? We recommend you watch Paşabağ Valley from the highest point. If you are not in a position to visit the valley of the priests, watch the video above, it will be as if you have visited the valley.

The impression that all fairy chimneys in Cappadocia look-alike have misled us with the Pasabaglari valley, because: While there are fairy chimneys with funnel hats in the Zelve valley, you can see more cylinder hats fairy chimneys in the Priests Valley.
