    A small historical town with kind and loving people.

    The Fairy Chimneys in Göreme - Cappadocia need to be experienced to be believed. A must see natural geological attraction ... there are many Chimneys all over the region and a good place to start is the Göreme Open Air Museum. Here you will also see examples of Chimneys converted to habitation over the centuries as well. Photos do not do them justice, they need to be seen in real life to truly appreciate them. It is truly magical.

    I really liked the story behind the pigeon valley. Especially how certain quantity of the pigeon manure could be exchanged for gold many years back

    A very worth-it climb (5 TKL entry) but make sure you do not stay just near the flag and tables but move forward to the next two viewpoints. Make sure you are at the top at sunrise. Soon after the sun will appear from behind the hills.

    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.

    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.

    Most attractive place in my trip to Cappadocia.
    Photo and Video are not allowed.
    You should pay here, even if you already paid the Open-Air museum ticket.
    Ticket price was 40 TL in Jun 2022.

    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.

    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.

    Shortly before the last, frighteningly steep, descent to the open air museum, there is a sign indicating a rather nice though plain church: the Aynalı church. . Apart from the church there are several other rooms that one can reach climbing through the rocks. It is named Symmetrical Church on some sites, ayna meaning mirror as in my dictionary it is translated as "paneled", and the front has noticeable panels (though they are not unique to this church).

    What a beautiful place to put up your tent and experience the true beauty of Cappadocia! A little bit out of town, it's wonderfully quiet and surrounded by the spectacular mountains. It also has a nice swimming pool and is very close to the open air museum. I would recommend this place for every keen camper!

    Serious safety incident
    Nice UNESCO church and a bit of a walk from the main road. I was there solo at the same time as two other young women. Gatekeeper came out of ticket office, asked for 20TL each and opened the door. He asked me where I was from (US) and then proceeded to flirt asking why I don’t speak Turkish, etc.. he did make an effort to tell us who some of the figures were while having his arm around my waist and rubbing my back. At one point, I’m pretty sure he rubbed his penis against me. He told me no photos as I pulled out my phone. He told me to go left as I was leaving (exit is to the right). I didn’t see anything so walked on along with the other two girls. He yelled to me down the street to come back. Unfortunately I did. He told me to come back in and said I was able to take pics but only me. Then I was heavily pressured to go into his house for tea. As I left and walked away from him,, he followed me down the stairs asking about my plans for the next day and told me he would have the key to The Hidden Church tomorrow and that he wanted to show this to me and only me. It took a lot to get away from this guy. Very inappropriate. Solo women should unfortunately watch out when visiting.
