Love Valley is one of the best point where you can see the increadible forms of fairy chimneys with a panoramic view. This place called “Bağlıdere” between locals of the region, but especially in recent years lots of wedding couples coming here to make their wedding photo shoots, thats why it named as Love Valley nowadays.
Paşabağ (also known as Monks Valley) is the best area where you can observe the formations of fariry chimneys, also some different types of them like; three-headed fairy chimneys and the thiniest neck fairy chimney.

If you want, you can try to make your own unique pottery after the demonstration.
