Pasabag Overview

One of the best places for hiking in Cappadocia, the Pasabag valley is a must visit if you wish to witness the raw beauty of this region. The valley brilliantly showcases the surreal charm of the place with some of the most exquisite fairy chimney formations. Also known as the Monks Valley, you can find the famous chapel of Saint Simeon here.

Boasting of an outlandish landscape, Pasabag is one of the most popular places to see in Cappadocia. Paşabağ in Greek means "Pasha’s Vineyard," and just as the name suggests, Pasabag is set amidst vineyards. Adding to your Turkey travel itinerary, the valley is also known as the Valley of the Monks owing to the mystically beautiful landscape.

The valley is popular today for its spectacular mushroom shaped fairy chimneys that form picture perfect backdrops. One of the fairy chimneys with three heads has a chapel dedicated to St. Simeon (Simon), and a hermit's shelter that are a must-visit during your Pasabag day out.
