You can ride horses from village to village through these?fairy chimney valleys comprised of interesting formations. Fairy chimneys are sort of like hoodoos in the American West. These rocks have been eroded by the elements and time.

You may ride to small vineyards, old monasteries and churches carved out of the rocks and underground cities.
