To Paşabağı

In November 2014 I arrived in Cappadocia a day after the first snow had fallen. Staying in Ürgüp, I noticed the area where I intended to do a lot of walking lay in a kind of depression: the surrounding mountains were indeed covered with snow, but the “Cappadocian heartland” was almost snow-free. One of my favorite hikes is up the central mountain (I think it is Ak Tepe, White Hill, though people told me it had other names, mainly related to a lone grave at some point, hence “Dede” (Grandfather) or “Mezarlık” (Graveyard). I climb uphill at a point called Panoramix (at the start of the so-called Rose Valley walk, downhill), and get down – after some crisscrossing across the mountain - at Cavusin. During this particular walk I found there is a trail above Cavusin that will bring you to Paşabağı (The Pasha’s Vineyard). It is wonderful: great views, some curious rocks, and the fastest route between Cavusin and Paşabağ that I’d know (I did it in half an hour a week later). These are the pictures I took. Some pictures (with more snow) were taken a few days later, when the Panoramix point had been covered with snow also. That time I went into the Rose Valley (see elsewhere).
