The whole ride will take two hours, afterwards, we’ll return to our hotel for a short rest, followed by a special Sunset Yoga Session at Red and Rose Valley at 6 pm. These valleys take their names from their pinkish rocks that change shades throughout the day. Sitting directly across where the sun sets on these lands, these valleys offer every shade of pink and red during the golden hour, which is why they are rated as Cappadocia’s number one sunset location. As the sky starts to darken, all of the orchards, rock churches and fairy chimneys will blend to create an unforgettable view.
