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.
Being here was so exciting!! The place is full of vendors and little shops selling carpets, food, etc and everywhere was so colorful!

The castle is very close to Goreme town. We took otobus (public bus) to get there, very convenience only 10 mins ride. We walk up to the castle through a village. The view is fantastic along the trail. There is nobody there except the staff...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.

Uchisar and the castle. you may need a couple of hours, however it is a great place to have as a base to explore the whole region. We stayed at Ansia Hotel at the base of the castle, highly recommended and owner speaks English and has also worked as a tour guide so is a wealth of useful information. By the way you can walk through pigeon valley from Uchisar to Goreme, a wonderful way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
