Exploring the Ottoman Empire
Date > TBD
WE ARE invites you to combine modernity and tradition on our adventure to Turkey and its most beautiful cities. Fly above the land of Cappadocia in a massive air balloon seeing the world in a birds-eye view like never before. This adventure will be nothing short of magical, powerful, and unforgettable.
PASABAG (MONKS VALLEY)
Pasabag in Cappadocia is located on the road to Zelve, coming from Goreme or Avanos. Highly remarkable earth pillars can be seen here, in the middle of a vineyard, hence the name of the place which means: the Pacha's vineyard. Pacha means "General", the military rank, in Turkish and it is a very common nick name. This site is also called Monks Valley. The name was derived from some cones carved in tuff stones which stand apart. Currently, there is a vineyard and a number of tuff cones standing right next to the road
