I truly enjoyed walking around the area. My friend and I were able to do a hot air balloon, and the view was absolutely breathtaking. I loved every minute of it, and would love to go back again.

Our bus stopped for few minutes to watch the valley and take some photos. Many buses stopped as well. Souvenir shops and restaurants. Nice view to the valley with hundreds of pigeons all around

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.
