the lunar landscapes of Cappadocia: rock formations of imagination in Soganli Valley
Soğanlı is about 36 km south of Mustafapaşa, with interesting hiking trails, several old churches and pigeon houses inside the rocks in two valleys. You can have fun exploring the area on your own and getting off the beaten track. There also used to be a traditional Turkish village at Soğanlı, with people living as they had been for centuries, but unfortunately this village was closed in 2011 by authorities. Due to erosion it was considered too dangerous and currently the authorities are planning to turn the old village into a conservation area.
