The entrance of the valley which is covered with cedars, 4400 m in length is rather steep. The Valley is also a cheerful trekking course with fairy chimneys, passages, tunnels, and great vegetation. As well as churches and caves situated in the region, Meskendir Church is one of the most worth-seeing structures in every respect. Explore the Rose Valley, a large valley located between Goreme and Cavusin villages divided into many smaller valleys: Gulludere, Kizilcukur, Meskendir, and Zindanonu valleys. This beautiful valley gets its name from the rose-colored rock that varies in hue and intensity depending on the time of day, season, and weather conditions. During the hike, visit several cave churches, cave houses, and cave tunnels. Rose Valley has paths for easy, medium, and difficult levels. The most common path in the valley takes around 2 hours (3.5 km).  Reach Cavusin old town, the church of St. John the Baptist rises on top of the hill. The church was built in the 5th century and it is the biggest cave church of Cappadocia even though it was divided into three rooms in the 10th century against the danger of collapsing. Most of the frescoes of St. John the Baptist church are faded by smoke but there are still some visible ones. Discover Kaymakli underground city, built under the hill known as the Citadel of Kaymakli and opened to visitors in 1964. The people of Kaymakli village have constructed their houses around nearly one hundred tunnels of the underground city. The inhabitants of the region still use the most convenient places in the tunnels as cellars, storage areas, and stables, which they access through their courtyards. The Kaymakli Underground City has low, narrow, and sloping passages. While the underground city consists of 8 floors below ground, only 4 of them are open to the public today, in which the spaces are organized around ventilation shafts.  Continue to Uchisar, situated at the highest point in Cappadocia, on the Nevsehir-Goreme road, just 5 km from Goreme. The top of the Uchisar Castle provides a magnificent panorama of the surrounding area with Mount Erciyes in the distance. Many rooms hollowed out into the rock are connected to each other with stairs, tunnels, and passages. Finish at Pigeon valley, situated between Göreme and Uçhisar and ideal for walking, as the trek is relatively easy. The name comes from the thousands of pigeon houses that have been carved into the soft tuff since ancient times. Although they can be found throughout Cappadocia, they are especially numerous in this valley. They were carved wherever space allowed, including abandoned cave houses and churches. In Cappadocia, pigeons have long been a source of food and fertilizer.  After a wonderful tour around the south side of Cappadocia, you will be transferred back to their hotel
