4.7/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web
Wander through Zemi Valley among naturally formed rock pillars, caves, and fairy chimneys. The walk along the southern edge of the valley between Goreme and an open-air museum provides panoramic views over the countryside. See houses, storerooms, pigeon niches, and churches carved into the rock along the way. Look out for a little rock-hewn chapel with ceiling paintings. Poplar trees cast shade over the trails, but be sure to wear hiking boots and sunscreen, and carry a bottle of water. In one steep area you'll have to hold onto a rope.
