WALKING in ROSE and RED VALLEYS (2 -3HOURS)
Rose Valley is a large valley between Goreme and Cavusin towns , and it is divided into many smaller valleys: meskandır , Kizilçukur, and Zindanönu valleys. This beautiful valley gets its name from the rose-colored rock that varies in hue and intensity depending on time of day, season and weather conditions.
