The fairy chimneys were on my must-see list in Turkey and did not disappoint! My only regret was being on a tour and not having enough time. It was well worth it to climb up the cliffs on the sides for a better vantage point and less crowds, as most people seem to hang out on the level ground area.... More

The Park is something that cannot be missed, something you can find only here and now. The only problem is to visit it when there are not a million people walking around and this can be accomplish either at lunchtime or late in the afternoon.

We walked here from our hotel in Goreme. I would suggest going either very early or later in the day as the crowds were excessive. A must see site so still worth going even with the crowds. Do wear proper footware as it is outstanding to see people wearing flipflops etc walking around and holding up everyone else.

Goreme National Park is an amazing place with natural beauty with lots of different valleys to hike in. Most of the valleys are relatively short (1-3km) allowing for continuous hiking at any pace. Each valley has a different natural beauty so in all the National Park looks like a huge theme park for hiking. It feels safe everywhere, and never... More

magic place with the only problem to be visited when there aren't millions of people around! probably the best moments are at lunch time or late afternoon. don't forget the church located opposite and left the main entrance to the park.

Visit the park but try to go when there are less crowds. Pay the extra $ to see the dark church. You can see pretty much everything in two hours or less.

Very close to Goreme, you walk and get right there in the caves. It's a nice place to be and spens a couple of days. We rented a scooter, a very nice experience. The roads are not too busy, we felt save on the scooter. Uchisar is a must!.. like Goreme. We visited Urgup and Avanos... You visit Turkey, you... More

You cant not like this area. Its like nothing youve ever seen before. The rock formations, underground villages, cave like homes and the history to how and why is amazing in itself. Get over there!
