About Mustafapasa

Mustafapasa lies in the centre of one of the more verdant areas of Cappadocia, blessed with an underground river whose waters 5 km further south are collected in a dam. Near the dam in a rustic garden where you can sample a catch of the local fish .

Walking out from Ukabeyn a short path leads under the viaduct to the Monastery of St. Nicholas. From here you can walk on up untrodden magic valleys, passing the occasional rock-hewed chapel.

Mustafapasa itself is an artist’s paradise: fine carvings decorate the house -fronts, while old porches are painted in mustard and emerald green.
