Greate place for baloon photos
Sep 2021 • Couples
Greate place to watch the baloons. Everyone likes something else, for us that was the best place to see the sunrise. To go up there will cost you 3 tl pp so very cheap , there are many people offcaurse but its big enough to find your own spot for the photos without anyone in it:) Make sure before, that the baloons are flying. If you don't see any on the way there in Göreme around 5.30/ 5.45 am there are not flying and you can go back to bed;) According to the website where you can check if they will fly , the baloons are not allowed to fly when the wind is stronger than 12 kph . The website gives a green flag if they are allowed to fly but it does so the same day.. so better to check weather forecast for next day ( how strong will the wind be ) or if you are staing in Göreme , look out you window first. If you are scared of big dogs be ready cause there are many there, but they are not interested in people and very gentle so no need to be scared:)

Don't pat the entrance fee
Nov 2020
Don't pay the entrance fee. If you access trough town, they will charge you 3Tl to go up to the viw point. If you access from the other side, there is just the mountain and you can access freely.
We visited coming back from a trekking day and didn't even realized that this was the same place where they make you pay.

Panoramic View
Sep 2020 • Couples
Our hotel was only 5 minute's walk from here ended up going here to see the sunrise and sunset. Views at both times were beautiful, especially at sunrise with all the balloons flying around. Some of them even landed on the hill. From here you get a panaromic view of Goreme and surrounding. It did get a bit crowded in the morning and when the trailers started to come up for the balloons, the road was fully blocked. We had to wait til the road cleared to walk down. They do charge 3TL per person to go up to the view point.

View point of Goreme town.
Oct 2020 • Couples
You have to pay a small fee to get up the hill to Sunset Point, it’s only 3 lira per person, you pay in cash only at a little hut at the bottom of the slope.
We didn’t go here for Sunset but during the day, there is a cafe/bar at the top and also a sign that says “Goreme” which you can take a photo with.
There are a few souvenir sellers trying to up-sell their goods!
Worth a quick visit for the view.

A view of wonder but better at sunrise with the balloons wandering the sky
Jul 2019
Sunset Point has great views no matter when you go up but if you go up before dawn it gives you a great view of the hot air balloons that fill the sky to catch the sun rise. I went up nearly every day because it was so close to where I was staying. It gets really busy there because its such a central location. After a few days I went further out to escape the crowds but if you have a limited time in town it is definitely the most accessible way to catch the hot air balloons for sun rise. It has a great view of sunset as well but you go there for the hot air balloons in the morning.
