Full description
You’ll be picked up 45 minutes before the sun sets and head to the Red Valley viewpoint to get the best spots. This popular hiking area features sandstone rocks that turn a gorgeous shade of red as the sun sets. If Red Valley is crowded, you can also head to Devrent Valley, which features towering rock formations that can be interpreted to form animal shapes. After watching the sun coat the sky with a multitude of brilliant colors, you’ll stop by Ortahisar Panorama, Pigeon Valley Panorama, Uchisar Castle, Goreme Esentepe Panorama, and Cavusin to take some photos and capture the beauty of these landscapes at night. End the evening with a light show at Zelve Open Air Museum. This unique show uses computers with mapping software which are then projected onto the caves and rock formations at the Zelve Valley. The 30-minute exhibition depicts the story and history of the human race, specifically the Assyrian, Hittite, Persian, and Alexandria civilizations up until the development of the modern republic of Turkey. If the weather does not permit a light show, you’ll head to a local restaurant and dine on delicious local fare with some live music entertainment.

It was amazing experience. Our guide fatih took us to very nice spots with beautiful panoramic views, then to a night lazer show in the caves explaining the history of Cappadocia and Türkiye. The stars was also beautiful as it was dark. Must do
