View the mushroom-shaped fairy chimneys of Pasabag, where hermits once hid. Here you'll see the chapel dedicated to St. Simeon and a hermit's shelter, built within one of the fairy chimneys with three heads. St. Simeon was living in seclusion in the 5th century, when rumors began that he made miracles happen. As the rumors spread and St. Simeon became the object of unwanted attention, he began to live at the top of a 2 m (7 ft) column, later moving into a 15 m (49 ft) column, descending rarely to retrieve food and drink brought to him by disciples. Eventually the hermits of the region distanced themselves by cutting into the fairy chimneys and hollowing them out, creating rooms 10-15 m (33-49 ft) high, instead of living on top of the columns. Wear comfortable footwear with traction for your visit, as the steep path up the hill can be rocky. Enjoy the panoramic views of the area from the top of the hill. The area is easily accessible via a local bus from the city, but note that public restrooms require a fee for use, and that there is no information posted about the history of the area, so inform yourself prior to your arrival or go with a tour company.

Wow is the first word that came out from my mouth. It is like you get to another planet - the scenery is unbelievably strange :-) it is really good place for science fiction movies!
Spectacular geology! I felt like Poppa Smurf waking around in a mushroom village.
Fantastic. There are about 4-5 cave-dwelling that you can climb right into here. The place probably needs better conservation and protection to keep it undamaged, as the stairs are eroding. There were very many other tourists and school groups here at the time we visited, so it got fairly crowded and made taking photos slightly annoying. Otherwise, what fun to climb around in here!
Great view, a lot of small hill in this area.
A great monumental natural formations. Ever each is unique and beautiful 👍
