Zemi Valley, Goreme

(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.

  • Rock formations per side is feeling. Anyway a mystical landscape has spread from the Asahi evening sun and scenery you want to look through the day. Because only large difference between day and night temperatures 15 degrees Celsius during the day and the temperature difference may please note that morning and evening.
