    Göreme was an epicenter of early Christianity, it also featuring painted cave churches. The rupestrian churches date from the 10-11th. century and include Tokalı Kilise and El Nazar Kilise , St. Barbara , Saklı Kilise , Karanlık Kilise . .. . The otherworldly fairy chimneys are impressive. The park is a unique spot, not to be missed. Prepare for at least 2 hours of walk with a lot of matchless sights (it became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1985). I found also the "Dark Church" remarkable because of the way in which it preserved the beauty of the celebrated frescoes. Nevertheless, if you are not curios/passionate about the subject, it is better not to pay the additional ticket.
    Prom a practical perspective, the landmark is easily to be found and has a parking There were several very commercial stores while I expected to find something authentic craft objects. A little crowded in the morning with longer waiting lines for the ticket purchase. If you feel the need for a guide, you can find an authorized one inside. We did not go with this opting (as we have done some reading prior to the visit) but there were several groups which seemed pleased with the service. There is a cafe and a museum shop inside so you can have a coffee and a drink.

    Part of our Gate 1 travel tour, we visited the Fairy chimneys which were formed by rocks, ash, wind and water over time. Unfortunately, due to erosion , the columns are changing the basalt rock cap is cracking, hopefully they will stand for much longer and be preserved. You walk around them and take pictures as you are admiring them.

    I liked the overlook that this valley offers. Also the fairy chimneys are popping out of nowhere, almost iconic look of the area.
    No tickets to enter this place needed.

    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.

    Lovely but strenuous walk. Three quarters of the way up we mistakenly took a right turn which lead to the farmed areas not the trail so we had to turn back and retrace our steps for about 15 minutes.
    After 3 hours reached the top and managed to hitch hike to the next junction. From there we hailed a passing taxi to get back to Goreme.

    Getting off the plane in Kayseri, this was the first place in Cappadocia that our guide took us to. With all the natural beauty of the area, I can see why. Plus, it is right off the road so you don't have to walk too far to be surrounded by fairy chimneys. Parking is at a premium and hard to find during busy times. There are also some kiosks nearby to buy souvenirs. Something for everyone!

    The valley not known and famous like others at Göreme and not easy to reach the valley but all that negativity the valley deserves to visit. Mostly you can go to visit that valley with safari jeeps, can not reach with a normal car. We get there with Tempest Jeep Safari / Uluer group and other secret places also.

    Coming to Ucihisai, the tallest rock in Cappadocia, we saw a tower of tuff and a picturesque warren of cave dwellings, some still used as houses, restaurants and shops. It was definitely worth a stop as a photo op. Staying on the same road, we came to several spots offering breathtaking panoramas of the Göreme Valley. One, Honey Valley, featured red cliffs reminiscent of Abiquu, the New Mexico geological formation made famous by painter Georgia O’Keefe.

    We booked this tour through our hotel (antique terrace suites) & we were happy they work with such a great supplier. We were picked up on time & had a great tour. The stable was only a 10 min drive out of Göreme if not. There was only 4 of us which was really nice. There was 2 guides looking after 2 horses so you felt safe. I’d never ridden a horse before! The horses seemed really well cared for. The tour itself was great - you were on the horses through stunning scenery through the Love Valley. The guides took loads of videos & pictures for you on your own phone. Great fun & as Cappadocia means ‘the land of beautiful horses’ it is a must! I’d 100% recommend.

    Part of Imagination Valley which is great to go down. If you look around you can have lots of fun making shapes in the rocks, as well as the camel, we saw a seal and an elephant. A good fun half hour.
