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. Use our Goreme itinerary builder to visit Zemi Valley on your trip to Goreme, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.

  • A detailed plan tours of Cappadocia. we are in Central Anatolia in the heart of the Cappadocia Valley Gereme. In an old Polish Cappadocia is famous for the land of beautiful horses. Located in the heart of Cappadocia in Turkey belonged to the Hesysów, Greeks and Romans. Ove łopotała flag of the Crescent and the people prayed to the gods. Kapadocjanie were the first, who found out about a new religion after the resurrection of Christ. Reconquest of Cappadocia followed in the 80s of the 20th century, but already had a peaceful nature and najezcą were tourists from all over the world. Now it's hard to look for Gereme climate with 20 or 30 years, every step of the shops and bazaars. If you want to get some peace and quiet we stayed 2 days away from the center of the cave. It's been a completely different planet, it's hard to imagine that the words, but who he lives knows what's going on. In the upper part, Gereme, in the so-called czubach all the time living people and a part of these climates past remained deposited volcanic ash, he gave birth to everything. This is him in Cappadocia owes so lunar landscapes. It all started with 30 million years ago, where a volcano; El Dzije, Hasan and Melendi during eruption covered an area of 20 thousand square km. Glued to the rocks of the village are doing amazing little wrażenieChcąc take the peace we went 2 km from Gereme village Uczichadze, preserved was the peace which was missing in Gereme. This place is in my opinion the best view of the whole valley. There it is best zachowne prestochrześcijańskie temples in the form of a Slavic frescoes. Then we go to the open air museums where there is a museum. We can admire there a wonderful paintings on the walls. Preserved Byzantine frescoes can do an impression and the admiration of the visitors. Leaving the area Cappadocia leave request as instructs Muslim usage on so-called trees. Leaving Gereme we admire the local sites of Central Anatolia. Of course not ominęliśmy visit the corridors in an underground city, that was a refuge from najezdzcami during the war. Their construction can amaze and the temperature is a constant and is 7-15 degrees depending on the level. For the inhabitants of Cappadocia is the most important trade and haggling is a ritual during the transaction. We regret to say goodbye in the silence of the moonlit Valley called by the inhabitants of another planet.
