This trek/walk was really nice but it can be easy to get lost. It's not too far to walk between uchisar and goreme, and the best views are from 1km north of uchisar (worth the further walk). The best way not to get lost is...More

Walked from Uçhisar to Göreme, possibley should have done it the other way round as somehow we lost the Valley path and ended up struggling on a much higher, very steep and at times slippery upper path. This was very challenging due to the soft...More

Mandatory stop on green tour around Southern Cappadocia, this valley is famous for a home of lots of pigeons. Not too many visitors undertake a trip down to a valley itself from a parking and lookout. Most take a photo or two and move on.

Rug up, take plenty of fluids plus good hiking boots and then enjoy the walk. From Goreme it is a 3 or 4 hour trek.
