As I understand it the Goreme National Park is the whole area. There is a cave museum which you pay to enter and some of the areas are closed off so this might be a bit of a disappointment. You're not allowed to take photos in the caves even without a flash either although it didn't seem to stop people... More

Goreme National Park is really a must do if your are in Cappadocia. The churches are awesome. The scenery is breath-taking. Unfortunately, every other person coming to the area also come to this National Park. We went and experienced it, then went on to other more relaxing and less crowded areas of Cappadocia. We walked to Goreme National Park from... More

This unique park is a must visit place. Either you see it via a balloon ride or from the ground, both are astonishing.

This amazing park, defined by unusual rock formations known as fairy chimneys, covers about 25 miles between the towns of Nevsehir, Urgup and Avanos. When we visited Cappadocia, I never saw signs indicating park boundaries, but we certainly visited many sites within its territory, which includes the Goreme Valley and its surroundings. One especially outstanding site is the Goreme Open... More

It's amazing. Go there. Go into the caves and spend some time looking at the paintings. Hike up, hike down, look at the scenery. Awesome!

This is basically the whole area of Goreme. Walking into the town, browsing all the ships, restaurants, etc was fun. It was more fun in the night as the lighting makes the town flow like a gold city. Beautiful it is!!!!
