Next, we will drive to the magnificent Ilhara Valley, where we will walk alongside the Melendiz River for about 1 hour which winds its way through the unique home to rock-carved churches and underground dwellings. With nearly 100 in total, they line both sides of the gorge. After hiking, lunch will be served in a restaurant on the river in the village of Belisirma. After lunch, we continue to Selime Monastery which is an astonishing rock-cut construction and the largest religious structure in the Cappadocia region with a cathedral-sized church cut directly into the volcanic tuff. On the way back, we will stop at Goreme panoramic viewpoint to take pictures of Pigeon Valley and the unique rock formations.
