Very beautiful place, has nice mountains-swords, which looks not like swords :) It's great to go there by bicycle, you may stay in one of small outdoor local cafes to get a great pomegranate fresh.

Lovely valley with nice hiking paths. Be careful though as it is easy to fall if you don't watch where you're stepping. Can get hot so bring water, hat, sunglasses, etc. More great photo ops.

I went for a short hike in Zemi Valley. It is very beautify and nice. Be careful on some of the trails because it is not marked clearly but maybe it was the part I was hiking on. Parts of the valley is shaded so it is suited for an afternoon hike.

White Valley is a very beautiful canyon. There are some paths that lead down it and you can not get lost. However it is a very nice hike that makes you feel like you're away from everything for a while. The rock formations and the little caves are beautiful and a lot of fun to climb. To have the best...

Walk, or bicycle or hire a all-terrain scooter - all were fun. We paid our obeisance at the 800-900 AD church house in a much bigger fairy-chimney and was worth the effort with its beautiful wall paintings. Without cranes and modern equipment, the cave condominiums were amazing - we were fortunate to climb up one with the help of a... More

Zemi deserves more attention. it has a wild feel to it. There were tons of grapes everywhere, small paths, trees and a good finish with a grand view.
