    A beautiful national park - and we only saw about three other people all afternoon. Loved the Cross Church and all the other cave dwellings. Incredible landscape

    Devrent Valley is set among Goreme town, Zelve open air musuem and Urgup. Therefore, I suggest when visiting any of the latter two to stop and take a small hike through these amazing formations. There's a parking lot just by the road. It will consume only an hour of your time and among others here's the famous Camel rock.

    Carved by lava, wind, rain etc over hundreds of thousands of years, wonderful hiking in the area.
    We also hot air ballooned across this valley which is very special...the balloons descend so low that you can almost touch the chimneys!

    The Fairy Chimneys in Avanos, Cappadocia is an awesome site to see.. Great walking trails with paths that take you high on to platos that allow you to be above the structures and take wonderful 360 degree pictures.. This place is a must when visiting Cappadocia.

    We walked from our hotel Sultan Cave Suites up to the Open Air Museum traversing all the caves and pigeon houses along the way. Then we went back down along the Sword Valley, this part is an amazing walk through skinny yet deep gorges. Absolutely recommend this it is amazing.

    A Stone Mountain Castle makes you feel like a barbarian king…. Very agreeable and beautiful view from the top. We took a fun camel ride after the visit.

    Zemi Valley is set between two most famous castles in Cappadocia - Uchisar and Ortahisar.
    Driving between them there're several places to stop and park your car to explore more amazing landscapes with fairy chimneys and other rock formations.

    This is the famous site in Goreme for balloon rides, as most of them take off from here.
    The place is absolutely amazing from the balloon, but was even more interesting seeing it from the ground when we drove our quads before sunrise seeing so many professional photo sessions here - a lifetime memory.
    Strongly recommend to take the morning ATV tour.

    We spent a couple of beautiful hours hiking along a section of this valley in the snow, mid March. It was so cold but wonderful....there is a cafe beside the river half way along and hot drinks were very much needed.
    We did this as part of a full day tour from Goreme...incl Derinkuyu & Selime monastery with the highly recommended Gorgeous Tours

    The real advantage of this spot is the more red color of the rocks, making for some excellent pictures. That said, you will be aiming away from a flood of tourists taking selfies.

    This is the deepest tunnel complex open to the public in Cappadocia and you get to go 8 levels below ground and witness where many thousands of people once lived underground. The history of the area is fascinating.
    The floors are fairly good but tunnels are steep in places, not good if unfit.

    This site is about 90 mins drive from Goreme but so worthwhile visiting. We did a full day tour with 'Gorgeous Tours' which was superb and included an underground city and a hike along Ilhara valley also, very reasonable.
    There is a steep but short climb to this large rock monastery....also a church and chapel etc...
