History of Sleep Valley
According to a rumor; It is said that during the Ottoman period, wealthy Jewish families lived in the region where the Sleep Valley is located . One night, the bandits rob the houses of all the village people and run away. When law enforcement goes after the bandits, they find them sleeping under a tree and catch them. When they are caught, “How do you sleep without fear?” they ask. The bandits said, “Is it possible to come to such a paradise and not have a sweet sleep?” says.
