I mean...just check out those pictures! This is some gorgeous scenery! Had a blast wandering around here. It's definitely touristy (camels for hire, ice cream vendors, etc.) but if you get lucky and time a visit between the tour buses, you'll get some great photo ops.

This is the reason one visits Cappadocia. Simply fantastic out-of-this-world kind of place that we should at least see once in our lifetimes. Great for photography when the sun is out with blue skies but the winter scenes here with snow look great too. Bus-loads come here but there is plenty of space for everyone to wander around unless you... More

you should definetely visit Pasabag and see the old house in rocks. It's impressive. Pasabag is one of the most popular place to see around. don't go hungry there though, it's quite crowded and difficult to have something to eat due to queue

If you are a keen photographer, a visit to the Pasabag Valley is well worth the time. We visited 4 scenic locations within 2-3 hours of each other with each stop providing a totally different perception of the famous "fairy chimneys". For the best photography and to give your photographs more depth, visit early in the morning or late in... More

This is among the many landscapes dotting Cappadocia that you come for. Probably the best! My first impression was this cannot be natural. Upon closer look at the top of each 'mushroom', you realize how perfectly each structure has been circumcised to reveal the mushroom top. It just seems too perfect to be natural. But I doubt UNESCO would have... More

From Göreme to Ūrgup you can do this in 15 min, then the Zelve park (90-120 min) and then Devrent (10-15 min). You will not be disappointed.

One of the best places where you can observe hoodoo rocks (locally called fairy chimneys) of Cappadocia. If you go to the region, visit Pasabag to take some photos and spend no more than 20-30 minutes.

Also known as Monk's Valley, this place was beautiful! Really great examples of fair chimneys, better than other places I had seen. There used to be a monastery here and a saint, St. Simon, lived in one of the fairy chimneys by himself for 30 years. Make sure to climb up the hill on the side - there is an... More
