This castle is lower than Ortahisar's. It is mostly a view point. Entrance is 3 TL per person. The climb at same areas are steep. We were only allowed to ascend around 2/3 of the 'hill'. The view on top is nice.

This castle is very near to karlik eve hotel it needs about 5 minutes walking, so you don't need to make a reservation with a touristic agency to visit this castle.

Uchisar Castle gets busy during the day, you can start the hiking a little early to soak in the views of the city. It takes nearly 15-20 minutes to climb up. It should be in your list definitely.

If you are not opting for the balloon ride, then you should at least pay this castle a visit. Of course, both experiences cannot be compared but as this is the highest point of Cappadocia, the views from the top are quite rewarding. There are...More

The climb to the top of Uchisar Castle was moderate to easy. As we were there in November, it wasn't crowded at all, or hot, so it was a pleasant climb. Great views (and photos) along the way and at the top.

Lovely view and very worthy to pay and have a look from the top. Also from afar the castle is worth seeing, it’s just the thing to do, but it has a dominant viewpoint on the whole Capadoccia
