It's the highest point of Cappadocia and if you climb, you will have a holistic view to all vallies and lands. It's charming and the climb is relatively easy. Payment fee is only 7tl per person.

A very nice way to spend and hour. At 7TL it's not very expensive. You do need to be able to climb stairs to get to the top but they are fine if you go slow. The view is superb!

we could not climb to the top as we had a 4 year child. People who did were very happy to see the scenic beauty of this place. Lot of shopping around this place , especially the dolls.

Has good panoramic view of Cappadocia. Very close to the Gerome town. Not too difficult to climb. There is a small entry fee.

If you plan to visit this place be prepared to climb some stairs. And I must admit they are not in a good shape. The climb can be scary sometimes. I was carrying our baby girl in a kangaroo and even in that situation we made it to the top. And as soon as you reach it you will be... More

We payed 7lira per person for the entry. But there's not a museum. No information about the castle or history or mountain at all. Only a great view from the top, but that you can find on many different places in cappadocia.

You should climb whole the the way up to hill. There it is. Spectacular Cappadoia. If you could catch the sun set it would even be better. Perfect spot to take photo.

It is worth the climb to get fantastic views of the valley. It is a 360 degrees experience, and on a clear day you can see forever!

We've rapidly come to the conclusion that Health & Safety doesn't exist in Turkey, but we were pleasantly surprised to find that there was quite an organised staircase with hand rail most of the way. Stunning views from the top and well worth the effort.
