For your Imagination

On the northern slopes of Aktepe sits the only valley in the region that humans have never inhabited. It lacks the cave homes and castles that draw many visitors to Cappadocia but has an abundance of incredible pink-hued rock formations resulting from years of erosion. Some of these formations are shaped like pillars, while others take on odd shapes.

Also, there are some animal-shaped rocks and fairy chimneys in the valley. Here visitors can spot the dolphin, seal, alligator, snake, and praying Mary rocks.
