The vineyard of Pasabag is only 3kms away from Zelve. It is also called the Valley of Monks. Currently, there is a vineyard and a number of tuff cones standing right next to the road.
There used to live Christian stylites and hermits in these carved rock cones. They used to hide in these specially carved stone monasteries. Some of these cones were only carved in the upper section for better protection against the aggressors.
The Simeon monks was also living in one of these cones.
